On the market, you're right, some team will drop stupid crazy money on him over a couple years.
You can't really compare those deals though, especially Moulson. The market has changed dramatically. When Moulson signed in January 2011, the salary cap was $59.4M. It is now over $70M, and the UFA market is particularly weak this year. There is no way Moulson would sign the same deal today.
