I like the move for lots of reasons. Some of which I understand it's what most people wouldn't say is a big deal, but to me...an 8 year deal for less than $5M is year is pretty darn good. Even if you think he's going to be a 2nd pair dman at best. Just think 5 years from now when he's 28 and finally in his defensive prime making less than $5M a year. Crazy contracts are being given out right now. He wants to be apart of Florida which is another thing that's pretty amazing. People Laud Shane Doan for his entire career in AZ and this is a guy that wants to be a shane doan type player...just wants a little more success. It's a risk reward scenario and I applaud Florida for seeing an opportunity and taking it.
