Hes not worth 5+ million, he wasnt worth it back then he certainly isnt worth it more now.

You are not living in the real world. Briere Drury Gomez are probably not worth 7+ mil over 5-6-7 years but they got it as UFA's...Sundin is not with 10 mil but the offer was on the table. As a UFA Koivu would get at least 11-12 mil over 2 years or 15-17 mil over 3...that's minimum. His agent is not a moron, and a home town discount is not 30-40%, it's 10% or less.
