For someone who will be on the ice that much, even if he doesnt produce offensively, his defensive contributions are worth it. Just look at the contracts of other top defensive centers.
Contradict yourself some more please.

First you say it's an "overpayment" now, but then you say it will be a decent payment through the length of the contract.

Bottom line is, it's not an overpayment, especially for a well rounded forward. It's hard to come across forwards that are both highly gifted in both the offensive and defensive areas.

i dont think it's a contradiction, but to be safe, pretend i wrote "It seems like an overpayment now".

The vermette we have now is not worth 3.75M, but vermette on a UFA contract might be.

The overall gist of my post was that it's a fair contract.

Maybe a slight overpayment but that would be neatpicking. 5 years is a little too much however.
