I recommend people go take a look at what similar players are signing for these days. Koivu is worth significantly more than 3 million. I mean cripes, Ryder just got more than that. Naslund got 4, Erat got 4.5, even Demitra got 4. Those guys all had similar production to Koivu last year, and I'd argue that Koivu brings more to the game than any of them.
Here is a good comparison, and where I see Koivu sign for.

Naslund type of contract.
