It's only another 3 years at $3.85M.

That article also mentions that Gunnarsson may also NOT be "the greatest top 4 guy that no one has heard of, of all time" either?! Could that really be?!?

Liles struggling since his concussion has nothing to do with the fact that getting a 2nd back was bad value at the time. His limited NTC was probably a factor, but to be honest, if he never played another game from today onward I'd still think that was bad value at the time.
