it also depends on what your expectation is. If you fly off the handle and look at this season only, then obviously he's not worth what he's getting paid. However, if you look at the past few seasons, where he's either hit or been on pace before injury for 20-25 goals...combined with his defensive ability, then yes, I think he's worth 4.5. I think those two things combined in a bigger market would get him Selke consideration, actually.
