How is 5-6 mil for 5-6 years overinflated?

Markov's return should push him down to #2 or 3.

Would you rather sign him to something reasonable now or lowball him and have to pay 7 years 7-7.5/year in 2 years? That's why teams try and lock up their young players long term.

Are Zajac Hall Eberle etc worth their contracts? Price hasn't played to the level of a 6.5 mil goalie yet either.
