I don't think anyone expected him to be as big a contributor as he was this season. Another solid move by the NHL's worst GM.
It's funny to go back and read your posts feverishly defending the Leighton and Shelley signings. You don't have a whole lot of room to talk or pass judgement here.

Edit: That being said, I never had an issue with this signing. The term is long, but he doesn't have a NTC...for once.
