Fair enough, but $7.25MM is still going to be pretty hefty throughout the length of the contract - it's still probably going to be 8% of the team's cap hit in the last year of the deal (about $5.2MM with the 13-14 cap).

And the Suter and Parise contracts are atrocious, so that's not a great comparable.

All true. But 2014-15 is going to be interesting to say the least.
