Let's be clear: Alex Pietrangelo is a #1 defenseman. He has proven that in his career far more than he hasn't.

I realize he had a rough time at different points last year. However, Petro was 4th in the Norris voting the year before and might have beat out Skinner for the Calder in his rookie year if not for the messed up eligibility requirements.

Once we acquired Jay Bouwmeester and gave Petro a steady partner, he was a reliable #1 d-man again. In the playoffs he was very good, as was most of the defense outside of Game 4.

Now is he worth 7 million? Heck no. He isn't worth more than Erik Karlsson.
Is he worth 6 million? Yes, he most certainly is.
