As a UFA I'm sure he could have gotten more money than his last 2 contracts. Look at skilled d-men on the UFA market the last 7-8 years, Campbell Suter Wisniewski Wideman Garrison and a pile of others have all gotten overpaid by 1-2 mil/year on the UFA market due to demand > supply.

Gonna be an expensive blueline though-

Markov (5 million) - Subban (8 million)
Gorges (3.9 million) - Emelin (4.1 million)

Guessing here but one or two of:
Diaz (3.5 million)
Beaulieu (1 million)
Tinordi (1 million)
Murray (1.5 million)
Drewiske (just under 1 million)
Pateryn (just under 1 million)
I see Gorges or Diaz being moved at some point if Diaz and Markov both return. It may only be in 2015-16 once the young guys start pushing for bigger roles.

Whatever Diaz gets it has to be a tradeable contract.
