Agreed, but NJ has started a history of overpaying players in the cap era, whether RFA or UFA, while Deano has generally had a very good track record with getting guys signed long-term at resonable salaries. Case in point, Jonathan Quick.

Brown has a history in LA, signed a bit of a sweetheart deal for us last time around that now looks ridiculously cheap, and judging by how he played after those trade rumours came out, doesn't want to leave LA. I'd imagine he wants to leave even less considering the Kings are the defending cup champions and the entire cup roster is back for another run.

I say he returns at a cap hit of around $4.5-$4.9 million on a 5-7 year deal.
