I'm thinking he'll get paid a lot more than what you're anticipating - I'm guessing $39 million over 7 years for a $5.57 cap hit. That's what we paid Markov and Hamrlik and the same that the Wiz got.

I don't think he's unstable, I know he does some things he shouldn't but he's still a kid. It seems like good natured stuff that's a bit too much for some of the older guys. The younger guys seem unfazed by it and I expect the team to get a lot younger as time goes by.
Wow that's high. But for 7 years it's not out of the ballpark. I was hoping for something in the 3.9-4.5 range for 5-6 years. But the way signings are going, and in terms of real on-ice value, I could see him breaking 5 and it still being a good contract for the team in the long run.
