Exactly - sign a long term contract in Philly; don't buy a house. JVR didn't really sign at a discount either, but he did sign a relatively long term deal with the intention of staying in Philadelphia.

It is, but if Giroux signs a long term deal in the near future, his NTC won't kick in for another year, and he could be sent elsewhere if the wind blows the wrong way in Philly.
