I'm pretty sure he signed his contract based on the thought that he would be the same player he was at the time he signed the contract, which was a legitimate no. 1 center. You don't sign a huge contract unless you've shown you can be a special player.

Who signs huge contracts? Elite scorers, no. 1 defensemen, franchise goaltenders. 50 point, two way role players don't make that list because they aren't as coveted.
