I'd disagree. I thought that he played well enough to garner the 5 million given what other players were making. Surely some might have thought that and I could see why, but when he signed the deal I thought it was fair price given his elite two way game and how he was already a Selke Nominee finalist the year prior and latter was nominated again and finally won 2012. That's quite the feat to be going head to head and mentioned in the same breath as Datsyuk.

EDIT: I'd give him 4 years at 4 million 4.25 at most then re-negotiate with him then and hopefully is willing to accept a more delegated role like a 3rd line winger.
