the islanders might not be a good team now but they will be and likely soon..when you sign a 10 year deal you dont just look at next season...you look at the possibilities going forward in the short, medium, and long term

where he loses credibility is in signing for that much because any team signing him for that kind of money is tying a lot of salary in one place....and will have less to bring in other impact players or pay existing impact players...

i doubt he gets that much...and if he does the islanders are crazier than him
