Its a steal when you compare it to other RFA signings(like Umberger, 3.75 per for 4 years). He should be getting 50% more and another year or two.

He takes a pay cut now for the chance of big money, or a different team, in just two years.
Before this agreement was signed, Vermette had the right to go to arbitration this year and next year and become a UFA in two years. So this agreement doesn't affect those rights either way. But this deal is a good deal because Vermette signed for less money than most people thought he would be awarded by an arbitrator, and he's locked in next year as well.

If he has a break-out year this year then it will be even more of a steal.
