If his offence progresses, we got a laughing steal, but if it doesn't, we've got an overpaid #3 centre.

Again, I like the deal, I think its a worthy gamble, but I still think it's a gamble. I'd say we're better than 50%, though, hence a great gamble.
this is for 13/14, he is still paid 1.4M this coming year which is a pretty good deal.

Is there something in between laughing steal and overpaid centre?

If his offense stay the same as last year, we will have a 50pts 2nd line centre with excellent defensive skills @ 3.5M, in my book it's a bargain.
