Koivu on the open market gets over $5M a year EASY! Hell, Ryder got 4$M a year after the year he had last year!
I don't necessarily thinks he gets a pay cut... I just think we can play with the reality of the Salary cap rules.

Give him 5, 4, 1 for three years... or 5, 4, 4, 1 for 4 years...

Something like that..

This his cap hit is low... but his salary for the next 2-3 years remains high.

Everyone is happy.
