He's a Seto-Clowe type player on a Seto-Clowe contract. More consistent than either of them so the contract is good but not a super steal or anything. He had an atypical playoffs last year and that was a big key to the Kings' success. But it was atypical.

Nothing will compare to the effect of going from not having a cap to having one. Teams have now been operating in the salary cap era for some time, so a lowering of the cap won't be nearly the change adding a cap at all was.
