If he really felt Comrie was a key to the team, I doubt he'd have picked that particular phrase.
The thing that I"m sure many players are realizing that with CBA coming up, they are willing to sign long term for what seems to be lower than average. But with the future so uncertain, I think most players are realizing might as well sign long term with a contract then have no contract at all. They are alos thinking $2M is not so bad, it's a pretty decent living.
