    How? They must expect him to progress quick, cuz that seems like a huge overpayment for the guy.

    It's an excellent deal considering he's probably their system as a Top 2 defensemen. I believe he leads in ice time and blocked shots. And just looking at his stats he was a +23 overall (with Pesce) and the next best on the team is a +2.

    I think this deal is more of a "Lets give him 5.3 million per year now before he gets in that 7-8 million range".

    The grumbling about Kopitars 7million per second deal is the same thing here. Gm's are going to lock up their expected cores no matter what. The thinking has clearly changed to give them some flexibility should the young guys coalesce they would be able to add the pieces for a final push. But the trick is avoiding making a core like St Louis who never quite got over their own humps and now they have no flexibility.
