You can't sit there and say at the time it was a terrible signing. It wasn't the way I'd have gone (signed older vet and give Bob time to develop,) but it wasn't TERRIBLE. The contract was too long and too much, but how many of us really thought it'd be a problem in the first two years? Many speculated the contract would be awful in maybe the last 3-4 years, but not the first two. Hindsight is giving you the benefit of calling this a terrible signing. It wasn't. A terrible signing is signing Rick DiPietro to a 15 year deal or whatever it was after one year of play.
