OH noes 6million, are you crazy? Take a look around. It's not 1993 anymore.

6million would only be a slight over payment at this point. Solidifying him for 8 years make its a no brainer imo.
6M/year is a little steep. I agree on buying up as many UFA years as possible, but PK and Meehan have to bring something to this negotiation. At 8 years, I'd expect a cap-hit of ~5M. Back-load it if you have to, but after this arduous process I think MB expects at least a little longterm cap room if he's committing to PK for 8 years.
