long term deal at 5 mil per is probably what you are looking at. a savard-like contract maybe? no way he takes less than that, and anything above 5.5 means he has to walk. The problem is that lots of other teams will love his regular season heroics and will pay him probably up to 7 mil for his services. a really dumb and desperate GM will give him 7.5.
