Personally I see him singing for around 4.25-4.5 million on a 4-5 year deal, say: 4 yr 18 million? or 5 year 21.5 million? After the contract he'll still be young enough for a big retirement contract.

If he signs for a shorter time there is a greater likelihood an injury, a poor team, or simple bad play will keep him from future earnings. A lot of teams might be willing to pay him as a potential starter without him ever being a starter, but if he takes a one year offer and fails he misses out on MILLIONS.
One year in Vancouver next season, with games 20 games against Edmonton, Calgary, Colorado, Minnesota.

$17-18m for a four year contract, $21-22.5m for a five, or sign for one year using your $3m, and cash in like Bryzgalof?

I'd say on the free market, after another season playing on Vancouver, he'll cash in.
