Come on. With this market, it's obvious he'd be worth more than $2M. Greg Zanon got $2.25M. That's a starting point, and it's only logical his asking price was quite a bit north of that. I agree that it's overpayment, but the degree seems to get a bit overstated.

No need to worry. I can virtually guarantee you that none of the signings we made yesterday will have a negative impact on our ability to re-sign those two until next summer. They either will, or won't. Having Souray around should only help, as spending money for a veteran that has put up good numbers before is a sign that the organisation wants to be successful. Players tend to not think of other players in the same dimensions as fans and HF posters.
