Who was the last defensemen like Smid to get $5m?

Defensive guys like Smid don't get paid unless they put up 25 points to go along with it. His value is about $3.5-4.25, and if he can be signed for that it will be a very good deal. For $5m you would be signing a younger Hejda, that has less offensive spark (Hejda isn't a great comparison, but an easily relateable one). I have a bad feeling the lack of good defensemen is going to drive up his price drastically.

I won't get into a discussion on what exactly Carle is as a defensemen because it is impossible to remove my bias.
