Hell, he scored a hat trick last year and Timonen called him out for inconsistent effort after the game.
There's very little risk that JVR wont become a 4.25m player in the near future, and a case can be made that he's there already.
For 6 years, I'll take it.
The options were probably this or a short term deal in the 3.5 range. I'd rather take the 6 year deal that has the potential to be a massive steal, would you not?
In fact, I'd imagine they gave JVR and Giroux the same choice. 6yrs/4.25m or 3yrs/3.75m. They probably just picked different ones. Wouldnt shock me.
It's a little high now, but I think you'd be crazy to argue that this was a bad decision on Holmgren's part
