4.5 is reasonable. He will not, and should not, make more than Backes. Backes is the captain, and a damn good one at that. He should be the highest paid forward. I think Petro will get a longer deal, and for more money than either Backes or Oshie, simply because he's a special player. I don't even want to know what people would be offering for a UFA Pietrangelo, and I hope I never have to find out. There's certain players like Backes, Pietrangelo, and maybe Tarasenko if he turns out to be a special talent that you need to hold onto long term. Backes and Petro are virtually irreplaceable.
