You are thinking of Jack's worth today. It's more of course, but He didn't sign a contract yesterday.....

I know Jack having the season he did is making people forget about his abysmal first couple of years but yikes.....1.4 mill for the guy a year ago was a lot......
It's called potential - something the agents like to use to use to get more $ for a player. Johnson could've easily hold out and signed for the Pens for 1,5mio$ to play with his buddy Sidney. In fact there were plenty of rumors about KHL offers for Jack if I remember correctly - 4million$?.
Oh, as for the 1.4 million being a lot for an NHL 2nd pairing defensman -> ELC of top 5 picks can be worth over 3mio$ (with bonuses) nowadays.
