No one wanted Feds last year. He came to camp as a tryout and earned a contract, making 1 mil. Part of what made him so valuable last year was that he out-produced his cap hit. So should he get a bump? Perhaps. But he's still a guy who could have been without a job last year. Giving him a 2 year deal gives him security. There are no more big paydays in his future, so if he can get 2 years @ 1.25 mil per year, he will take it.

I think that's more than fair for both sides.
3.5 million two year contract is what Sather will sign him for. Or he will sign for 2.2-2.5 elsewhere. No one should take last summer situation into consideration. He had a down season with Bylsma. Different coach brought different result. Thus, it might not be a player problem. Something along that logic...
