Paying PK what he's worth is not a problem but we had the chance to get him at a discount which would've given us an advantage going forward. It was a missed opportunity.
I think it's important to have as much organizational flexibility as possible at this early stage of a new management group as it evaluates and begins re-structuring the team. That's all.
And yeah, you can call it a missed opportunity, but it was an opportunity traded. You gave up the $1.5-$2M in cap for more guaranteed years in his prime and to stick to what I think is a smart organizational philosophy. That's my take.
