. That's it. I don't see a problem with the term because it's a two way deal.
He's so much better than Stevenson.
Term becomes an issue as they reach the 50 contract limit if it turns out he's got zero value as an NHL asset. Just poor use of a slot. Not, like, earth shattering obviously but I'm not a fan of such a commitment with nothing substantial behind it.
If he can be a ~replacement level/callup-type guy then having him locked up is no issue. If he can't, though, you've locked yourself in for no reason. And that's still entirely possible with him at this point.
