Don't forget that you do not need to have much depth before Cally ends up on a 2nd PP unit, and than he would not score more then maybe a little under 50 pts on the avg year. Add in a a few weeks to a month missed due to injury -- and it is a lot to pay him 6m per. A lot.
I am not saying that we shouldn't resign them or that we really are overpaying them. But I sometimes it sounds like they would get superstar money as UFA's, I don't know about that.
Its in the nature of free agency for some guys to come in higher in free markets. If callahan was a UFA right now, especially with this years class, he could fetch 5.5-6.
