It's perfectly reasonable for him to demand $2m, even $2.5m since he's a UFA and there will likely be interest. He has either put up around 30 points or been on a 30 point pace for the past three years. I'm not even sure where you got six seasons as this was his 4th full NHL season. There's plenty of 30 point 3rd liners around the league making that much money.
That's not to say he's a good deal at that price.
