I wouldnt offer more then 2.5 - 3m on a short term as I would want the player to prove themselves over a longer period before giving them superstar money.

I wouldnt rank EK in the top 20 of dmen to carry a team to the SCF and therefore would consider a GM insane to pay him the type of money mentioned in this thread.

He is not a 70 point player as some have suggested and has never had more than 45 in a season. Sure he might this season, but the NHL is full of guys who have started out like this and burned out.
Maybe that's what you'd like, but that's not the way it works anymore.
