It's great that you feel non-elite player shouldn't make over 5mil a season, but I really don't think the players, NHLPA, NHL, and agents care what a homer mod on HFBoards thinks. Considering guys like Malone(6mil, 4.5cap), Horcoff, Drury, Kariya, and Richards all make upwards of 5million, the reality of salaries in the NHL is obviously too complicated for you to understand and goes against your "opinion".

The fact is, Franzen has put up 33 goals, is around a 40 goal pace over 82 games, is versatile in that he can play center or wing, good defensively, and a big body make him a very valuable commodity, especially for teams like the Habs and Pens. He's also become a gamebreaker and has scored multiple highlight reel goals, such as his beautiful goal against the Blue recently.
Richards is in his second 70+ point season, he doesnt really belong with those other guys. Unless you are talking about Brad
