I do not believe so, although his qualifying offer for the 2012-2013 season will be at least $7.5M.

So, if they want to extend him long term, they're going to have one year of at least a >/= $7.5M salary.

His cap hit does not need to be $7.5M.

His 2012-2013 salary DOES, however.

There is no year limit, although this arbitration award is a 1 year contract.

Yes, and you also have to consider that Burns was a pending UFA, while Weber still has one year of RFA eligibility after this SPC is up.

That's why I said 'starting point'.
I meant Chara's cap hit was $7.5M. cap hit is the only number that really matters to the Rangers these days.
