Not a HUGE amount more than Duchene got but maybe enough to bring him home? Or is he really all about 4+ mill a year?
All they have to do is offer him more than two years, and it eliminates the need to match Duchene's number. Dutchy has the chance to earn fairly big if he plays well on his next deal, and that could make up for the difference.

It just depends on how close they are in terms of the number for a 3+ year deal, and I get the feeling they're not close. Mark Guy denied $5M was the number for the two year deal, but didn't mention anything about the long term number.

So that's potentially $1.5M apart.
