I would have rather had a second contract that was more like 3 years 3 mil to make him earn the UFA years.
...wha? The Ducks were never going to get him for 3 mil a year, unless it was like a one year contract. Signing a shorter contract just means they end up paying more later. It's the last thing Anaheim should be doing.
