Ack, I don't want to put too much stock in this. Gets my hopes up, haha.
I'm not saying to get our hopes up, but we shouldn't use Doan as an example or assume he absolutely would turn down 4m.

He very well may, but Iggy is a guy who will have more than a few opportunities to make quite a nice income when he retires due to his name and ties to the Flames.

If he could make 12m over 3 yrs with the Pens vs 16-17m over the same term with a mediocre team, I doubt he will chase after several million more ala Jagr, to be honest.

All just a guess and I may be way off. I just know all those who DO come back will need to take paycuts, except Dupuis.
