Those demands from Clowe are outrageous. I don't think any team will give him an offer close to that. I could see a desperate club maybe giving him $4.5M for a couple years, tops. On a decent team with depth, I'd say $4M at most. My opinion, I wouldn't give him a penny over $3.5M. He has a lot of attributes that clubs will find attractive, however, he can be an irresponsible player on the ice and as we've seen this season and in past seasons, he can be wildly inconsistent and frustrating to endure with his lack of offensive production.

As for Filppula, I do believe that some team will overpay him, just as we saw with Hudler and Wideman who were both overpaid to sign with a bad team (the Flames). If the Caps fail to re-sign Ribeiro, I could see them pursuing Filppula.
