Oh no, I'm not suggesting that he's worth anything like 3.75 million at the moment. But in the post-Finger world, that seems to be the going rate for young, tough #4/5 guys. I mean, has Matt Greene proved he's worth 3 million a year yet? Not even close, but there's hope for him, and I think you have to gamble on your own young defensemen now to avoid paying even more for someone else's. That ought to be the lesson learned from Finger and Commodore - if you don't develop and sign your own guys, you're going to pay through the nose for someone else's leftovers.
