I think signing him isn't a bad idea at all. The commitment is, in my opinion. I'm still 50/50 on him. Best Free Agent that we could of have signed in a long time. First time we have a true #1 center since Nylander and a PP QB. Really good. No question.
A 31 year old with - just say he signed for 6 years/$6.8 a year - a big contract, would we be happy with him in the fourth, fifth or sixth year? He could possibly be an experienced veteran for the team now and then that gets us over the top. Too risky with the length and the cap hit at that point. I just hope I'm wrong when if it comes to it.
