do some of these signings today make last years signings look better?

Also, you can't compare these contract #s to each other. They need to be addressed in the context of that year's salary cap, what comparable players were going for, and team need.
This year offensive d-men were a HUGE commodity. Does Campbell's contract, or Rosie's or Redden's, make them as good as Lidstrom because of the $$$? No, of course not, because if Lisdtrom were to be signed this year as a UFA he'd be getting well over $8MM per.
The only way these contracts become really scary is if league revenues start to contract, and with the NHL adding new revenue streams daily, I don't see that happening.
