And it is not such a big deal to overpay a little for top d-man.
This is the kind of hindrance and mistake that the Leafs continually repeat over and over and over and over and over...

"Oh. It's just an extra million! We're rich. It's okay that you confused 'negotiation' for 'give-away free money', Mr. Phaneuf. Almost every other player does it, too. Enjoy the extra money not correlated to performance, Mr. Phaneuf!"

Signing players to bargain deals that are apart of your core and who presumably want to be in Toronto IS the goal. No more obfuscation.
