The only concern, aside from injury history, is that he came in to camp in the best shape of his career which, of course, just happened to be a contract year. Hopefully he keeps the off-season training at the same level because it really shows out there on the ice.
As for the number, isn't it actually a raise for Williams? The guy got $3.5MM after being healthy and now gets a raise after having one (knock on wood) healthy seaason. I like the signing as well but I think the "what a steal" rhetoric can be toned down a bit. 4 years is a long deal for Williams given his history so I'm sure that had to do with the minimal increase in salary.
Anyways, glad the signing was made and it's fair for both sides. Aside from DD and Simmonds extensions, I'd like to see A-Mart next with a Drewiske type deal, if he isn't traded today of course.
