Okay he's leaving maybe $5 M on the table but at the end of the day at least it gives him a long-term deal so stability and he doesn't have to worry about another contract as an RFA, he can sign his next one as an FA.

Btw, a $4.8 M cap hit might be a steal if he's an FA but for an RFA...it's fairly on par with many of the other ones. Not a Doughty-esque overpayment but on par with Tavares or Myers or Perron for example.
