The fact that Clowe is still with the org and still getting consistent top-6 minutes means that DW still see's Clowe as a critical part of the Top-6. More so than Havlat. That right there should be all you need to see to understand how DW is valuing Clowe. Given that Clowe will be signing his first post-30 contract, I'm sure DW will want to pay him "fair value" in his view for his prime UFA years.
do we really think Clowe is worth $4-5 mil per year??? I can't fathom that he is worth that. I'm thinking maybe $2.5-3.5. If he gets more than that, I will lose all confidence in DW.
