Boy I remember when we signed him I knew this day would come quick, and everyone said oh he is different, great signing, blah blah blah and criticized me for saying it then. To give a 30 year old that many years and that much money with a big cap hit in today's NHL world is crazy. You can't sign a guy that long term hoping for him to give you something in the first couple years of the contract only. Well we can thank our lucky stars we have a buyout coming. He won't get bought out though until after next season though(I believe that is when we can still do it)
