Some players that make near $4M:

- Jordan Staal ($4.0M, tho admittedly with a huge term)
- Travis Zajac ($3.9M)
- TJ Oshie ($4.2M)
- David Perron ($3.8M)
- Mike Fisher ($4.2M)
If he keeps up his point-per-game pace this season, it will be interesting if he gets overpaid (i.e. near $5M per)
Most of those deals are either bridge contracts, or contracts signed a few years ago. And Zajac's extension brought him up to 5.875, you can't use his last contract as the benchmark for him. Guys like David Krejci make 5.2 million, and that's a pretty fair comparable to Gagner.
I think 5 is on the high side of things, but it won't be much lower either.
