The Comrie at $4 Million Talk

I am trying to understand where this talk of Comrie asking for $4 Million is coming from. If Comrie were asking for $4 Million per season, no team would be interested.

Marian Gaborik who is easily the better player and coming out of the same contract situation signed for a little over 3 Million per season. Comrie and his agent are not idiots, there is no way they would be asking for that kind of money.

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

Comrie like Havlat must realize that he has no arbitration rights.

I don't understand how him or his agent would expect Comrie to be paid significantly higher than any of Gaborik, Richards or Havlat.

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. Comrie I can see reasonably demanding something averaging around 2 million over the next couple of years. I think the money thing is getting blown way out of proportion by the media.
