There is no way Travis is worth 7M a season. So if i feel he is better than PK i would not want to give PK 7M either. They both IMO would be around 4M range give or take a MIL depending on length of a deal.
I'm very high on Travis but he is not a stud in the mode of Doughty.
Travis is a solid 2nd pairing guy that may top out as a #2 to a skilled puck rushing #1some day, but he will not be that #1 himself.
Still, he is the best defensive prospect we have had here for a very long time, so the impulse to over rate him is understandable. He is a good deal at $3.75-$4MM for us.
