This is faulty logic. There's no reason that 'top 6 player X' would need to sign for less or be traded for a similar package. The guy could make $5.5mil and be an upgrade - that's still a move worth making. Or acquiring a Bobby Ryan level player for a much greater package than Booth garnered...

The $4.2mil is an abitrary number. Upgrading the team is the goal - not upgrading the team at or less than what David Booth makes.
