Nonis has no choice but to sign him because the 2nd round pick will most likely not turn out to be as good as Kesler. If he underperforms, you can always take him to arbitration and sign him for less again.
Nonis should have signed Kesler before something like this could have happend.

DN made a good offer to Kesler but he wanted more. And how is it that DN has no choice but to sign him? Kesler is not a top 6 forward and having him is not going to make the Canucks a sudden contender. It's not that big of a loss.
