Meh. Good for three years, but is gonna fall off after that. To me, this contract either just put a limit on their window or is gonna force a pause in the middle of it. Zib relies 100% on offense. He isn't very good on defense, is average in puck entries/exits, loses a lot of puck battles, etc. He is a one-trick pony with his fantastic shooting, but offense usually falls off in early-mid thirties. So this could be a problem in a few years.
This also just declared Zib as the first line center for the next at least 5 years. I'm not even sure I like him as #1 now and definitely won't then. Could do better, and have had the opportunity to.
