I really can't.
Why? It's the latest example of the GM having the inability to manage capspace and throw money at a problem. It's the latest example of his inability to evaluate talent. It's the latest example of his inability to show any control or restraint when it comes to UFAs.

That move might have been a lot smaller of a scale then Drury, Redden or Gomez, but the methodology is the same — overpaying in terms of dollars and years. And this came one summer after he overpaid in terms of dollars and years for a one dimensional player who was supposed to do the same thing.
