Personally, I don't think it's a mistake at all.

I think the odds of that deal working out roughly the way the Roy extension did are pretty good.

I think Hodgson will be viewed as a good center on a below market contract within 3 years.

And while I hate deals like Leino, if they are going to miss, I'd rather they miss on deals like they gave to Hodgson and Myers in that younger players on less than ideal contracts are waaaaaay more movable than say the Leino deal, or any other older UFA (think Redden, Gomez, etc.).
