His cap hit will indeed be greater and more money will be spent, but he's earned it. To top it off, we can sign him for as much as 6 of his UFA years which pretty much includes the majority if not all of his prime years.

How was this not the right decision?
Why do people keep claiming this. It makes no sense, first of all we could have signed him before the lockout and given him any number of years. And second if you are worried that he wants to become a UFA, the bridge deal makes it arguably more likely as he will now be 1 year away when his contract runs out so the temptation to will be there.
