Just getting word of this here...
Well, I'm not too crazy about MM locking players up long term. However, he did say that was NYI's philosophy with regard to NYI UFA's before the deadline. Pointing out the obvious, but NYI are retaining a limited skilled player with injury history for 3 additional years.
On the other hand, he most likely signed to a reasonable contract over the terms. If he comes in around 1 mil p/y, then that's reasonable and fine with me. Like Seph said, if the new GM doesn't want him around, then he can be traded. No biggie.
I would have MORE of an issue with MM locking up higher salaried players. So far, that has not happened.
