Bingo! They may need to overpay like this to get players to FL. And remember FL isnt just paying him for what he does on the scoresheet. This is a guy with a lot of playoff experience and he's still young enough that he should be solid thru the end of that contract. He's gonna be a good 3rd liner that when in need can fill a top 6 role.

I dont know why everyone is surprised by this deal either. FL has always had to overpay players to come play down there...Roberts, Niewy, Stillman, Reinprecht, etc, etc. At least with Kopecky, they're getting a player still in his prime.
