What would you have done with him? Dump him for nothing? Watch our foreward depth take another hit? Let his 60 point capabilities walk away? What?
Waited until the summer to evaluate his season on the whole, as well as Eller and Galchenyuk's seasons (i.e. his direct competition) and try to knock the term down to 1-2 years based on those factors.
