I'll be the first one to agree that Vinnys contract sucks and it will be even worse in about 3 or 4 years when Stamkos starts looking at Crosby money or maybe even more.
Personally, I think the bones of the deal make sense for Tampa even without Vinny re-signing.

That contract is going to be a major hinderance for Tampa, and the amnesty period is only this offseason and next... after that, if Tampa hasn't done something about the Vinny contract, they are saddled with that horrendous cap number for years... and if Vinny retires early Tampa is going to get slammed with Cap Recapture charges (you probably want to google that)
