Excellent deal overall. Minimal risk for a team with their cap space, and this is yet another step toward proving to Hall they intend to be contenders sooner rather than later.
The AAV may look high for a guy who hasn't played in the NHL, but he's been one of the more dominant players in the next-best league for a few years now.
If he plays up to the hype, this'll be fantastic. If he doesn't, it's a short term contract that isn't won't interfere with resigning their important players. Low risk, high reward, pretty good!
