Damn. One good year with high shooting % and 2nd assists gets him the ekblad deal? He is a fantastic young player but this is a huge bet by the sens. Hell the guy the deal is based off of hasn't even lived up to his contract yet so this is very risky.
That being said you have the entire prime of what is basically the sens version of Rielly locked up, so I think it will work out fine but geez is this ever an overpay right now.
If you're going to overpay someone, overpay youth to term and that is exactly what the Sens did so even though it is an overpay, I think this is a good deal for them.
