I think anything below $5M is ridiculous. Given the way he played, not just here but in Calgary as well, since earning the $6.5M-contract, I would peg him for a $5.5M deal.

However, last season, he played well into the shoes he was expected to fill originally, so I would be happy to see him in a $6.5M, 5-year contract. $7M/yr is the absolute top I could stomach, and that largely depends on his continued improvement as an all-around franchise defenceman.
