I'm not even sure why you're in here, on another team's board basically flaming posters after making an offer that you(hopefully) didn't think through very well.
A sure thing? No other team was willing to offer sheet him, not to mention the proposed contract will pay him 6.5 million his second year that is ridiculous. Its crazy to give up that kind of value for a player holding out. Apparently not to many people thought he was a "sure thing" except for the GM who forgot the rules and you of course.
