Really there is a chance if he went into early retirement it would count on the Wings and he is a 30 goal type guy at that number. I don't understand the fear on his contract it isn't like his cap number will be a complete deal breaker when he is older. Not to mention he really doesn't have as much milage on his body that people think. He isn't always healthy but that long stay in Europe means he didn't tax his body as much in his earlier years.

3.95 million isn't the same as eating some of these 6 or 7 million cap figures at the end of the deal.
