So lets just consider the money we're talking about?

He's mediocre to solid .. get and Eriksson like bridge deal. Now we're arguing about $700K in 2 years.

He's good not great .. breaks 20 goals 2 years in a row ... now he gets a deal similar to Neal for around lets say $3 even ... so $2.1 million is a burden?

He dominates .... pushes 80 points once or twice or even hits 30 goals and misses the bridge contract all together ... so Eriksson's 2nd deal? Something similar to Benn? That's not really a burden as much as it's fantastic for Dallas that they have another core player.
Yeah, it's either not a big deal or it is and we all have reason to celebrate.

I also really like that this gives the organization a chance to analyze their prospect to help determine a plan of action during free agency this year.
