On the flipside I believe you can get a #1 defender for less than $6.5m if he's old enough and not directly effected by the limit in contract length, i.e. older than 28 or so.
Don't really know what you mean by year two. If I understood right the cap would be the same as last season for this one and after this would trop to $60m, so there goes another $4m.
If the Cap drops, players will realize this (or need to) and won't be expecting such outlandish contracts. I think what he offered is fairly respectable...
