Not to be contrarian, but my memory of this was that it was $5M/year... same as offered to Cujo. Unlike Cujo, he was traded and ultimately signed for WAY more on the open market. And, unlike Cujo, at least he let us get something in return... well.... Reasoner & Hecht (who became Stoll & JDD).

Of course, that same summer, the other marquee C on the block was Yashin, who netted Spezza & Chara... but it is better that we don't discuss this sad chapter in our history.
