This isn't a RFA situation. As soon as this contract hits the 2nd year it's a UFA situation. Then a 3rd year makes it 2 UFA then the 4th year makes it 3 UFA. So if they signed him for a 3 year contract NEXT off-season isn't this about right maybe slightly less? Assuming what he might have gotten NEXT year as a UFA we didn't outbid ourselves.

Conmpare to Staal who has 4 years of RFA left.
