This is really high, so I put it under the BS category. Let's look at some comparable salaries based on age, blocked shots, hits and points. Not all these guys are exact Komi type players but they are somewhat in the same mould:

Orpik 3.75M/yr
Phillips 3.5M/yr
Brewer 4.25M/yr
Matt Green 2.95M/yr
Commodore 3.75M/yr
Volchenkov 2.5M/yr

That is an average of about 3.5M/yr. Now lets put his leadership and what he means to the team and you may tack on about 1M. Which puts him at about 4.5M/yr. Now the only question is what would someone offer him on the open market? But 6.66M/yr is much too high. If it is true, then it is simply negotiating 101. Start really high to decrease the Habs expectations as to what they can sign him at, ultimately settling at a higher number than the Habs were originally going give.

I hope for 4 yrs/18M...
