Martin Havlat who is arguably better than Comrie as well, only signed for 1.6 for one year.

My guess is that journalists are just taking Comrie's salary from last year which was between 4-4.5 Million and using that as their number that Comrie is demanding.

The fact that Comrie and Winter decided to hold out in the first place deals me to believe that one, if not both of them are indeed idiots. So who knows what they are asking for. I would assume that both of them would be looking for a big money contract before the CBA is up. Him asking for $3 mil plus per year isn't out of the question in my mind.
