Interesting approach with the short term bridge, but that was likely player driven. His advanced stats are good, so the points will come I think. He will out perform this deal.
I thought he'd be a good candidate for the Jarnkrok/Scissons approach with a long term low-ish$ contract though. If they offered him 14M / 6 years (2.333M AAV) perhaps they could get him locked up and that way once the Wild have re-tooled and need the cap space for their run at the cup, they have their #3C (or perhaps even #2C) on a good value contract.
