It's one of those deals, like Zajac's, where if he doesn't progress, it might be a minimal overpayment. However, the upside is huge.

Even if he somehow stalls, which is highly unlikely, he still is a 3 million dollar player. He brings a solid defensive game, intangibles, and will chip in 20g 20a seasons, or at least hover a little below that. But, he can also progress and become an even better player and the cap hit will be a steal.

Totally worth the risk, especially when the cap goes up and 4 million, 5 years down the road will be meaningless for what he will produce.
