Sounds like maybe some guy spitballed a number on some show, then others jumped on that as a "source". Seems to be the way these things work in this twittered up world.

4 yrs would be really dumb for the Habs. I don't mind the $5.5M, but as others say, 2 or 8 are the "sensible" terms for the Habs. The contract structure I'd support on a long term deal is more like $5-5-6-6-7-7-7-7M. That's $50M/8yrs or a $6.25M cap hit. But the first 4 years is the same as this. The next 4 anticipate both a rise in his impact and a recovery and re-inflation for the league in general. That's a much better deal for the Habs than $22M/4yrs would be. And if PK wants term, that ought to be better for him too.
