It's a solid deal. 8 years would have been a little bit easier to deal with, but really, the last 2-3 years on this deal are irrelevant. Fact of the matter is now we have one of the better playmaking centers in the league at a reasonable cap hit and we can expect 3-5 years of elite/very good play out of him. With our refusal to rebuild and get very high first round picks, this is really the only way we were going to have a chance to contend while Lunqvist was still in his prime.
