These are the guys making $2.2mil-$2.8mil this year on UFA deals:

Sturm
Samuelsson
Handzus
Prospal
Malhotra
Glencross
Pahlsson
Bergenheim
Cleary
Langenbrunner

I'd take Winnik any day of the week over Sturm, Samuelsson, Handzus and Bergenheim - probably Pahlsson as well. Glencross is probably better than Winnik but his contract is super long and has an NTC while Malhotra is a better player. Prospal, Cleary and Langenbrunner are different types of players entirely but I would take Winnik over Prospal for sure but it's difficult to compare him to the other two. I don't think $2.2-2.5mil is that outrageous.
