Really? I think this is a great deal

The part that makes this a steal for St.Louis is the term because Steen has had injury issues, and they don't risk very much.
Had Steen went to free agency this year with a 30 goal 25 assist season i could still see him getting $5.5 million offers tbh. Maybe it's my bias though because i like Steen as a player (former Leaf 1st rounder).
