Hartikainen is no where near 2.75 IMO.
Slight overpay? Fistric's current $1.45M is close to an overpay as it is. Doubling that would be crazy. Especially when we could probably keep Peckham for about $1M.

Agreed on Smid and Hartikainen. Stay-at-home defensemen rarely make $4M, let alone 5. Regehr got that back when he was widely considered one of (if not THE) top DFD in the league, and Smid isn't that. Hartikainen shouldn't be getting a 340% raise. What would he bring to a negotiation that would justify giving him that kind of money?
