More like he's being paid like Gaborik, Iginla, Heatley, or Vanek. He's easily on the same level as those players in terms of talent. Columbus paid a premium for him to make him their "franchise talent" but have failed to assemble a competent team around him. Comparing his contract to Crosby's is pointless.
