You are out to lunch.
His numbers are similar to Matt Moulson who has a 3.3M cap hit. In the first 2 years of his contract he has averaged 34 goals and 69 points. In comparison Pavelski who is making 4 million a year, has averaged 26 goals and 64 points. I would say they are similar in defensive ability too. Couture isnt too far behind either.

"Oh but that's just regular season!" He's FIFTH in playoff goals since then.
This is something I would expect Doug Wilson to say. Its not surprising that he is 5th in goals. The Sharks have played 38 playoff games the last 3 years. Marleau is tied for 5th with 15 goals. Pavelski is tied for 8th with 14. Couture and Setoguchi are tied for 13th with 12 goals. If we broke down Marleau's playoffs by each series, would it really look impressive?

So is a 34 goal, 68 point player worth 7 million a year?
