was 56th in take aways
was 1st in penalties
was 47th in +/-
was 28th in points
was 36th in goals
was 24th in assists

So logically he should be paid as a top-10 d-man in this league...

He was 28th in points produced, take that one. He was a relative + on his team and his advanced stats are the real ones to look at for his defense... they argue that he is far above 28th on defense, that his defense is better than his offense (which most of us agree with on qualitative observation). 24 NHL defensemen make $5M or more. Soooo... suppose you put him 25th. Doesn't need to be 10th. 25th is worth $5M.
