I don't know how anyone can say this is a bad deal. This is a standard across the board contract for this type of player. Any less and its a steal, anymore and its starting to get up there. Keep in mind this player was in Carolina throughout his career and that team hasn't been known as an offensive team. He has a lot of two way potential. He can shut down on PK and he can contribute on the second line. Given more minutes offensively with better line mates will increase his point totals. Signing a guy with upside for under 5 mill in the meat of his potential is a solid contract. He's 23 and the contract ends at 29. NHL players statistically reach their peak at 27 in this current NHL. They won't be hindered with a long term deal on aging years. To me, this is a steal for these NHL years.
