Suter signed in June of 2008.
Edler signed in October of 2008 (contract started in 2009)
Letang just signed in March
Seabrook signed in February of 2008
The cap has gone up about 3 mil since 2008, so inflation shouldn't be much of a factor. 3.5 per year is definitely fair. If Staal is looking for more than that, then he'll have to give up a year of free agency.
