You'd be surprised. I think it's a steal because Fowler looked poised to breakout this next season, and in a five year RFA contract potential is a huge factor. When you consider what his price tag could have been a month or two into the season, or when the season is over, the Ducks greatly benefit. Fowler's price tag only goes up from this point. He's 20 years old, playing top pairing minutes(with lots of untapped potential), and Anaheim has him locked up for six more years at a very sexy price.
