The 7-year deal takes him to 30 years old, too, which means we shouldn't see a decline in his play over the life of the deal.
On your other point, it's true on the roster flexibility going into the off-season. That could be both a positive and a negative though. Hopefully we aren't going to see some stupid amount of roster turnover.
They can afford it, but Bogosian isn't a $5.1M per year player right now. You're risking a lot on a player who hasn't justified his contract yet. Could he finally find the level of play people think he has within him? Sure, but that's a big commitment to make for a question mark.
