I don't really know what to make of this deal. It's even hard to judge it vs the 'post Suter' panic signings because we've now set the market rather than reacted to it but the defensemen market in general seems to have gotten really messed up in the past couple years. It's a deal that definitely puts a target on his back though, hopefully he can deal with the pressure.
I doubt there's some sort of looming blockbuster with JBo for any of the Suter-losers but if there is then well done Feaster (if there's a lacklustre JBo deal forced because of this then I would refer to my username). If there isn't then I guess we overpaid for a #3 d-man who can hopefully shore up our PP and our blueline is better heading into next season than it was leaving this one.
Worst case, we've got a pylon who forgot how to move the puck locked in for five years, for a team in our situation is it really a worthwhile risk?
