Personally, I don't have a problem with that. To me that price is worth the better odds of winning a couple of championships. Especially when we are talking about a guy who is only 27. We get a lot of prime years out of the deal and get a guy who comes in at a higher level for his respective position than either Nash, Parise, Suter, Jordan Staal or even Gaborik/Richards.

Plus,when looking at salary concerns, we have to factor in that Gaborik comes off the book in a few years and we have to consider Marc Staal. If he resigns, he is going to cost a primo contract, or he is going elsewhere and we get nothing, or at least someone far inferior to Weber.

So in the end, salary doesn't keep me up nights.
