 5year $15mil.

He would have likely gotten a 2 year deal for $3mil in arbatration.  Holland signed him for more in the first 2 years in order to tie him up long term. 

Think Holland made a good decision?  $3mil a year may seem like a bargain in a few seasons.

I think that length is a good deal for the Wings. The salary cap keeps going up a ridic amount every year... wasnt it $45 or so the year after the lookout? And now its $56 already. So right there salaries have gone up 25% almost. Once you consider this inflation, the deal looks great. Im really surprised Filipula agreed to that length. Maybe he feels he's at his peak? Thats the one danger... if he's a guy that gets comfortable/complacent now it could be trouble.

Overall I think its a good deal for the team.
