Koivu is no more a 2nd line player who can play there and stay there a year long. Make up your mind.

If Komisarek wants 5M$ a year, he can go scrap his career in Long Island. I'd givemore to a Ohlund or a Bouwmeester instead.
While I agree Schnieds has seen the big payday for the last time, I am not sure what you meant with the Koivu comment. Koivu will be our most valuable Vet next season, one that young guys will look to and follow. He has a great work ethic and Team first attitude you want others to emulate. Pay him 3-3.5 and give him second line duty. He won't be able to play shut down center and I would be very disappointed if they asked to play 4th line minutes or role. Komisarek probably will get 4 - 5 m and rightfully so, when he plays well he is a beast, he is one of the top defensive d-men in the league, let's toss because he hit a rough patch? I hope our younger players never read the stuff people write about them in here.
