I'm well aware of his injury history. This deal locks him up through essentially all of his prime though. If I had to guess, they're worried that without Norv he won't produce as well and he'ed be looking at a deal less than this in FA next season.
The problem I have is, if he performs well again for the next two years, he'll be a candidate for a Rosenhaus hold out. Thats what I'm ultimately worried about.
Kensat is right though, good guarantees and salary on par with a first round pick.
