Since when is Matt freakin' Walker worth almost 2 mil per year? $1.7 mil is an overpayment for him.

Walker is an okay #6 defenseman, but usually those guys only get payed around $1 mil per year. Why should he get more than that? He plays okay defensively but is worthless offensively and isn't a very good skater.

The Tampa Bay front office is so bad it's not even funny. They have to overpay to get Matt Walker. Wow. He adds some toughness, but after seeing the contract that he got, this is a terrible deal for them IMO. Not to mention they gave Ohlund 7 years!
