A very interesting point.

I agree with you that he probably isn't worth more than 4.5M. However, I disagree that NO NHL team will go over that.

I can see a team like Colorado/Nashville/Ottawa/Islanders/Dallas(after they've found a new owner)/Carolina who are all very close to the cap floor offering him 6-6.5M. Especially when you consider that the cap is likely to increase next year by as much as 6M dollars.
