I agree that $7.5M/4yrs is absolutely ridiculous.

With that said, I think I would still pay it. And the only reason why is that we are way below the floor to the point that members of the board have actually floated the idea of picking up Scott Gomez. If we're going to (over-)pay someone 7.5 million dollars just to make the floor, I'd rather overpay Doan for his trouble than sign someone else to something stupid or pickup someone else's salary mistake (Gomez=7.5M, Connolly=5.5, etc)
