overpayment for the first season probably. but overall a great cap hit. doesn't this buy out a couple UFA years? I don't understand why they didnt do a shorter term deal and have at least 1 RFA year to hammer out a long term deal.

And we wonder why there is a potential lockout on the horizon. This guy has played 1 full season in the show. He has 53 career goals.. I know he's only 23 but cmon..4.5 million. Nothing and I mean nothing was learned from the first lockout. If anything it's gotten worse..they keep pumping up the cap ( I know it's based on revenue) and guys like this keep getting these ridiculous contracts. He will score 18 goals next year and this contract will be a complete abortion that the Habs will be stuck with.

Don't see how its an overpayment at all. Hudler and Leino make the same amount, and Pac is a young up and coming player with 30+ goal capabilities. Six years makes this a really really good deal for the Habs assuming he stays healthy.
