Yeah, that's what he goes for if you want to overpay a stopgap UFA by $1-1.5M on a short term contract, not when you're extending your player past his prime. Grabo may come close to earning that salary in the next season or two, but we could end up with a Komisarek-like contract on our hands in 3 years time.

If we're going to overpay someone both in $$ and in term, I'd prefer a player who can still help the team when he's not producing, and not some one dimensional Waldo.
