Term is too long and he's overpaid, but reportedly he had other 3 year offers on the table... So it was either him or try to look elsewhere for a cannon with a size and nasty game. Not much options out there unfortunately.
I completely agree with you, we were not going to get Suter or Garrison, so who is left. I did not like the term either, but he fits exactly what we needed. A third pairing, Physical defenseman,, that can manage the PP.

Having him does not prevent Lindholm or Vatanen from playing next year. I think he was trying to set up the team to make a run for Teemu this year. Now we have the cap space to trade for a forward if need be at the deadline, and dont need to worry about the defense.
