I can't believe how hysterically people got over this.

The odds of Brad getting injured are slim. The odds that any replacement of his (Lecavalier, Weiss, etc) would get a long-term and extremely overpaid contract are a certainty because that's what all decent UFAs get.

We are better off risking Beaver injury, a small risk, than giving a 6-year, $40 million contract to Lecavalier. People keep ignoring all evidence that UFAs get paid more than RFAs, always expecting to sign someone to an RFA contact, and always bring surprised when an overpriced UFA contract is given out.

Consider this a signing of a second liner center to an overpriced, but usual UFA contract, except it is for only one year instead of 5-7. No brainer really.
