And if you think that's a "massive" overpayment...not really sure what to say. Except that you might as well stay out of the UFA market altogether if you're not willing to overpay.
Look at his production levels. Puts up big numbers in 2005 - 2006 to get a big contract, almost doubling his career goal total from 18 to 30. Gets a huge raise and his production went from 29,22,16 and 11 goal seasons respectively before rediscovering his touch last year. Granted he had some major injuries but still his production in contract years is much higher, and I'd be shocked if his goals and point totals didn't drop off significantly this season.
