That is either a poor deal for EJ or a poor deal for the Avs. I would have liked shorter term. He still hasn't proven to be anything more than a top 4. Either he will take the next step, and it is a poor deal for him, or he stays where he is at and hopefully for the Avs it is less than 5 mill. I am not a fan of rewarding player for potential, or paying money for what you hope he becomes. Again, hopefully it is less than 5 mill.
