Kesler, Sedins, Burrows, Bieksa, Hamhuis, Luongo, Hansen, Salo, Malhotra, Lapierre and Higgins all took lower amounts of money to stay with the team and I'd hope that Raymond is open to doing the same.
Luongo didn't take lower amounts... his first few years he's getting over 30M, it just drops towards the end of his career like it would anyways

Salo has never played a full season in his career.. nuff said

Malhotra getting 2.5 for a 4th line centre is wacked... that is no bargain

Lappy and Higgins were bouncing around teams with poor production, and I might be wrong, but I'm not even sure we actually re-signed them..
