JVR has yet to average 15 minutes a game in the NHL. Lets not compare him to Jeff Carter as a player when he signed his deal, he'd proven a LOT more than JVR has.
None of that changes the fact that he was not a $5 million player when he signed the deal.

He was paid based on what the Flyers thought he would become, same as JvR.
