Some of you guys I dont understand. I could see people being pissed if they were expecting a 3 year contract and he got a 5 year contract. But a 4 instead of a 3 is just trivial.

IMHO there's nothing wrong with this if he can be a good player for us through 3-4 years. And since we have the ability to trade him, if management starts to see him slip in years 2-3-4, I'm sure a trade will be doable to get him off the books.

He's a good addition to our club. Period.
But most people don't think he'll be a good player even 3 years from now, it's just that we were willing to stomach 3 years if that was the cost of signing him. 4 years is much harder to take.
