There are only 7 players in the league who have outpointed him over the past 3 seasons.

He basically accepted market value, which is exactly what he did on his previous contract (and exactly what I figured he'd do). I had him at $7.5 until some of this offseason's stupidity.

Bear in mind he's acheived that with Bozak as his centre.
