As far as I'm concerned, he's overpaid by a million, at most right now, in open market terms. He's already a top-4 caliber defenseman in this league. By the time his deal runs out, even if he's plateau'd as a player, given cap inflation, he'll actually be almost exactly correct or even slightly underpaid.
