Staal taking 5.5M would be a bigger discount, in terms of percentage and even total dollars per year, than what Sid and Geno discounted their last deals. His fair market value is 7M, maybe more, even I'm afraid, after the new CBA. I would love to be 100% wrong on this one, because if Staal signs for 5.5M or frankly anything under the low 6M range this summer, I'll be absolutely stunned. 6.25 would be a healthy discount along the lines, proportionally, of what Sid, Geno, Orpik, et al did. 5.5M would be bending over for Ray.
