I don't think Fowler is a steal on this contract, it seems just about right when you factor in Fowler gets security now and the Ducks are gambling on him getting better just to justify the $4m and hoping for a bargain later.
Fowler wins now, ducks win later.
He doesn't need to "make the jump" to improve his value, he just needs to consistently improve... which is a pretty safe bet for a 20 year old defenseman.
Again, the contract doesn't kick in until the 2013-2014 season.
