And a 6 year 27 million deal (which is what capgeek is showing right now) is fair.

Even if he is a "borderline" 2nd/3rd line C and I don't think anyone would doubt that he will be that at least, 4.5 million a year isn't that overpriced. And really he's young enough that he could develop into their first line C and then they got a steal at that price.
I'm just not a fan of 6 year deals for guys that had one decent year and have had injury problems( at least I thought he had). Buffalo didn't learn when they locked up Myers without very much backup on Myers part?

This paying for potential is why we keep going into lockouts.
