There are 17 players making 7+M.

Ovechkin
Malkin
Crosby
Staal
B. Richards
Nash
Lecavalier
Chara
Heatley
Gaborik
Gomez
Thornton
Campbell
Vanek
Drury
Spezza
Iginla

Now, there are a couple of bad contracts in there, but, I'm sorry, Gaborik shouldn't be amongst that group. You gotta be dominant on the wing to earn that type of coin from me and think it's a good contract. Wings just don't do enough "other stuff" to earn that big of a cap hit if they're not absolutely filling the net at the other end... and that's before we get into his injury history.
To each his own I guess. 80 points with no help is pretty dominant as far as I am concerned.
