Sorry, but I'm not getting on the panic train with you yet.
That there's no reason to give a player with Oleksy's resume a multi-year deal, it sets a bad precedent with other players, and takes away future contract flexibility for no reason.

Why would any vet player sign a one-year deal with the Caps now that they've given Steven ****ing Oleksy a 3-year deal? Let's say the Caps want to pursue Marek Zidlicky or Lubomir Visnovsky this summer. If GMGM offers a one-year deal, I guarantee their agents will come right back and say something to the effect of "well if you believe Steven Oleksy deserves a 3-year deal, my guy surely deserves it too".
