Price always comes in higher than people expect. Same thing every year.
I'm guessing they were looking at 4.2 or 4.3 originally and then the cap came in a bit higher. Bieksa also wanted 6 years, so they might have given him extra money and dropped it to 4 years. We'll find out.
I think Bieksa would have gotten 5.5 from someone on the open market.
Also, Kyper could be wrong, but 4.7 is a pretty specific guess.
