Remember, the market we are trying to sign him is one where Hainsey got 4 years / $22.5M, Commodore 5 years $18.5M, Redden 6 years $39M, Streit 5 years $20.5M.

No way he gets less than $5M a year. And by year 2 of that contract it'll be a deal for us.
Points are a major component of a salary.

Streit had a 62 points season with a previous season of 36 points.
Redden had a 38 points season, but also had 4 seasons of 40+ points before.
Hainsey is a crappy contract (although I'm pretty sure he has a 5 years $22.5M contract) but still he scored 32 and 34 points the past two years.
Commodore is another crappy contract, yet he got 29 points three years ago.

Like I said though, and like no one can come up with a name, there isn't any dman with a career high of 19 points making over $5M.
