It's up to Gulutzan to utilize him properly.
It is a bit of an overpayment, I won't deny that. I thought initially maybe a 2 yr $3.5-4M "trial period" would have been a better offer, but if he is coerced to do that, he isn't coming back once he becomes UFA and we're left stranded again. Maybe Larsen would fill in for him when he leaves, but when Goose extended, Larsen hadn't really figured into the equation.
