If you think he'll be good, great, you can get him for 3 years for like 2.5M, if he's good, great, if he's not, it's not an absolute loss. You don't sign a guy for what he used to be, you sign him for what he is, unless you've got some young superstar that everyone can predict being indisputably worth more in the future.</div></div>
And there's nothing wrong with your philosophy which is the common approach most of the times. But I'm definitely betting the house by trading Danault for him. He'll never accept less than 3.5 and I don't blame him. He's got leverage cause there's a big demand for him around the league. So I gotta out bid every one to acquire him and pay him more (term included) cause of the high taxes in Quebec. BOS is salivating over him as we speak and I can't let them have him. From what I hear he wants long term, no bridge.
