Even merely negotiating off this deal would at least be a show of good faith but I'm just expecting more games from the PA and more false indignance from the union.
Because we are getting close to the date when we must have a deal or the season is lost. That's why he should take the deal. I am not confident he will though.

And it also allowed us to showcase Bergfors and get Waddell interested in him. If Gionta was around that never would have happened.
