$4M is an overpayment but it's not ridiculous, especially if they locked him up longterm at that rate. With the cap continually going up and him eventually developing in to a top-15 (i.e. above average) goalie in the league IMO, $4M/yr is a very reasonable rate that could look like a steal. It might look bad next year but I think longterm it'd be fine.
