But that's the past man. Live in the now where 8 games in a strange, shortened season equals a two year extension at a decent chunk of change.
It might work out beautifully. I think it is risky due to the NHL sample size. Kind of like a pitcher on his second trip around the Majors...hitters figure them out a bit. While you have some money coming off the books in the summer, looking down at the end of the bench at $2.9MM wearing a baseball cap on a team with an internal cap is risky.
My issue with DJ is that he's super homer deluxe and this thread was just the straw that broke the camel's back so I couldn't bite my tongue anymore.
