Here are more comps for you-- Brendan Morrison (1.5), John Madden (2.7), Jamie Langenbrunner (2.9), Marco Sturm (3.3), Vermette (3.3), Pavelski (1.7), Morrow (4.1), Cleary (2.8), Prospal (1.1) and Macel Goc (.7). There won't be the perfect comp, but you get the idea.
Again, I don't think he's the most overpaid role player in the league, but there is little doubt in my mind that he's overpaid. I think he'd get around 2-3 million on the open market, 3 years or so.
