He plays a rough style of play, but so do many others, and they've been fine.
If 8 years is a concern, then what about the 10+ deals everyone else was getting in the old CBA? Even if they play less physical, that's much more of a risk.
I agree with those 10 years deals being bad too. Just his style of play makes for a shorter NHL career. Bodies break down. That would be my concern.
