Since you seem to like taking the negative side of things I will take the counter point and shut this down in a hurry.

Fact: We signed one of the most highly sought after FA's to the same contract that any team in the league could've signed him to.

Fact: He chose Edmonton because he likes what we're doing here and he likes the city.

Fact: He did not cost us any assets to acquire.

Fact: If he demands a trade later on and he reaches his upside we will get a trade return for a player that we got for free asset wise.

Fact: If he doesn't pan out he will stay in the AHL until we trade him, or lose him on waivers.
