The difference is their age - Savard will be well past his prime in his last year ~ 40 ... Plekanec will be only 34 in his last year(2 years older than Savard today), 1 Million seems unrealistic. Big difference between 34 and 40.

And I rather have a 27 yr old Plekanec locked-up than a 32 yr old Savard - even though Savard has accomplished more in his career, he's hit his prime - Plek is just entering.
