My answer would be Yes. To any amount basically.
Datsyuk would be fine for two year extension, even for 10 million. We have no cap problems for those years, our cap problems come back to consideration when the next generation of greatest prospects starts getting extensions. And that's not happening in next three years.

But I think Holland offers the same 6.7 million salary Datsyuk currently has when they start negoating. It was the Lidström way, you get older, but still are keeping your level = same salary. Or why not Zetterberg money at 7.5M? That ain't too high either, when the contract is short.
