IMO I would've payed him 3.5 million dollars, which is VERY fair, but I am very sure he would've denied it. And how does 500k make huge difference in salary?
That's where we differ. You ask if there was anybody else in the free agent market and there was a player who was on our own team available, Peter Mueller. And that may be your value of him, but the MOST I would pay for David Jones is 3 million per season and that's a maximum value, because I know he doesn't do anything except score goals in bunches and when he doesn't, he's useless.

Just imagine a lineup of

McGinn/Duchene/Parenteau
Landeskog/O'Reilly/Mueller
Mitchell/Stastny/Hejduk

I'd prefer that over Jones in the line up any day
