RFA contracts are just really hard to predict across the board. Everyone thought Marchand would get a huge deal, and he wound up signing at 2 years for 2.5m per.
I agree with this. I think the organisation will try to sign him to a shorter term deal or two to cover his RFA years and then give him a chance to go for the moon come UFA time.
