Yeah, just think about how much NSH will have to pay him in the next 365 days though. $13M bonus today, $1M salary over the course of the 2012-13 season (if there is one) and then another $13M bonus due on 7/1/13. Ridiculous but I'm glad they matched it. I absolutely abhor offer sheets and am glad NSH have the finger to Philly, Holmgren and Snider - the owner who had the audacity to make this 13 yr offer less than a week after he was a part of the owners group that requested that the players be limited to 5 yr contracts going forward in CBA negotiations.
