2 Problems with the contract that both depend on maybe's to be problems.

1: Health, he has worn down the last few years, it could be nothing the next few but you don't know, as of now its risk #1, can he have the durability of a number 1.

2: 35+ deal, we all know what this means.

Again it all depends on how it turns out, the term is a bit scary, the price is ok but those risks are going to be interesting to watch as they play out.

Still tho, we have two guys in the NHL to push one another, and two guys in AHL to push one another.
