Mark Giordano in 2011-2012 signed a 5 year deal at 4.02 mil a year after a 43 point year for a cap percent of 6.25% (nice home town discount)

Dustin Byfuglien in 2011-2012 signed a 5 year deal at 5.2 mil a year after a 53 point year for a cap percent of 8.09%

Wideman's contract is a bit of overpayment versus pervious ufa defenseman but he was the only RH defenseman available.

Yea, I don't doubt Wideman's talents and with guys like Garrison and Carle wanting 5.5, it will get pretty ridiculous. Sign a proven veteran that will help you immediately and also gives you time for prospects/young college signings to come along.
