LOL... "isn't horrible"? From a risk/reward standpoint, the deal is the best possible deal in the history of mankind.

Dean essentially signed a UFA 20-goal scorer since he got him for free via trade. That almost never happens (yes, players are traded for "nothing" every now and then, but not one of the highest scoring guys on your team).

There is no downside. Either the guy works out and is re-signed to a short term deal or he doesn't and he's off the books next year. Dean basically pulled a trade miracle out of his ass.
