Are you saying 2.5 million per year? I don't think he would get that. He has been very reliable when he is on the ice the last two years, but he has had a lot of trouble staying healthy missing 30 games or so the last two years and 50 games the year before that. Always has some nagging injury that keeps him out.
I think he signed the extension knowing he is in a position to be a top 4 defender in Minnesota, and hoping that if he can stay healthy for the next two years he can really cash in next time up.
