You don't see to understand the process.

Even before he goes on the UFA market, the Habs will have negotiations with him, I believe he will get signed for 3.7-4.1 annually. Despite his crappy year I think that's a good thing. In an ideal world he signs for 6 years at 22.5 mil.

Even if he hit the open market, I can't see him getting 5.5 per year given the economic conditions, plus a lot of big market teams are up against the cap...calgary NYR Washington Pittsburgh Detroit plus Boston has a lot of guys to sign. Toronto could afford him but does he want to rebuild for 2-3 yeras?
