Anything over $1.75m would be a gross overpayment, in my mind.

If Ryder stirs trouble over this resigning, it will be the second year in a row where he'd be seemingly asking for more than he deserves.
It was not Ryder who was causing the problem over the last signing, it was Gainey. The Habs wanted mutiple years, and Ryder and his agent wanted 1 year, which he will opt for again this time around. He will sign for 1.5 to 2 million, but only for 1 year.
