If he wants a one or two year deal to prove he's healthy, fine, but I'm not comfortable with 3+ years.
If he scores 45 points and add's toughness and leadership he is worth the money. If he was scoring 50+ points he would be looking at 4-5 million/season easily. Guys like him don't grow on trees.

After a pretty bad shoulder injury which he attempted to play through to help the team he was on pace for ~40 points in 82 games. That's with playing with a significant injury.
