Stupid CBA agreements.
Burning a year off Granlund's ELC is about the last thing we'd want to do. No reason to increase the cost of retaining him earlier. With guys like Zucker or Bulmer, they're likely to get incremental raises when they finish their ELCs. That means they'll go from $900k up to maybe $2MM. Granlund is a threat to go from $1.25MM to $5MM. That's not something we want on the books if we don't need to.
