There is no way in hell that either one of those players fetches that much in FA.
Not a chance.
You don't pay 4mil for a third liner and you don't pay that much for a #4 Defenseman that is probably closer to being a #5 DMan in an ideal situation.
I wouldn't mind the Hains at 2-2.5 and Antro at the same. I'd be ok with that. If they want to play here, they'll sign for that much.
Both are in the twilight of their careers, so it's unlikely that either will fetch top dollar.
