Hopefully it will be a 2 year deal buy in all likelihood it will be 3.

Cue the hilarity and 'LOL HOMER' posts when a 3 yr./5+mil contract is signed, but we can afford it. I honestly don't know why people freak about caphits so much, an extra million than you would've liked is not going to screw the pooch. A player like Streit is exactly what we need and we don't need to give up Couts or Schenn to get him.... That alone is worth an 'inflated' cap hit.
a lot of people don't understand that in order to get 95% of the top-end UFAs signed, you have to over-pay them by at least a little bit
