They should have signed him to a shorter term deal, say two years in length, with the understanding that he'd use that term to prove himself as a reliable, consistent year-to-year scorer and then sign him to a long term extension worth mondo bucks (Alex Ovechkin hasn't hit 45 goals in three years, FFS). And that's not even getting into the personality issues the guy apparently has.
