On the bright side, he'll be entertaining.
The problem is the Habs have not been able to draft/develop this type of player...that's why they had to go out on the open market and overpay (which you almost always do post July 1st) to acquire a Brandon Prust.

In essence, I agree with you...the Habs shouldnt have to be paying this type of player 2.5M per year, over the next 4 years. (though it's not really a crippling deal in the first place)
