$3.5 million-plus for a physical 18-goal scorer is TOO MUCH.
Yeah dude, that's like... 200K dollars per goal! If a guy like Parise got that, he'd be making... let's see... 6.2M dollars! Outrageous, right?

Anyway, people need to come to terms with the higher value of "role players" in today's NHL. It seems like every time a guy like this signs, it's deemed an overpayment. Prust, Samuelsson, Winnik, more recently Marchand. There are plenty of examples from last year too. Outside of the occasional hometown discount or the like, this is the new reality for role players.
