Some people on here must be on a different planet...so Koivu is only worth 3 mil a year? Is this in the same league where Drury Gomez and Briere made about 8 mil last year...and he is as good as any of those guys. Briere is a PP specialist, Koivu is a much much better all around player. Drury had similar numbers, Gomez has better numbers, maybe he is worth a bit more.
On the open markey Koivu gets 5-6 mil per year on a 2-3 year deal...especially if he keeps up his current pace(or at least puts up around 70 points).
Best case for the Habs he signs a front loaded 4 year deal to reduce the cap hit like 7 mil 1st yr, 5 mil the 2nd yr, 4 mil the 3rd year and 3 mil the 4th...19 mil over 4 years 4.75 cap hit. I'd try that with Komi Koivu Kovalev and Tanguay. Obviously Tanguay and Komi you can go 5-6 years given they are under 30 and probably have 5-6 more good years. Kovy and Koivu probably have 2 good years and 2 lesser years.
