I can see someone paying 4.5-5... but I can't imagine a decent team giving that cash to him... in terms of PPG he is in the 3.5-4.25 range for guys a similar age in the last 2 years. And his injury history probably takes him away from the top edge of that bracket.

4.5 would put him in the top 35-40 highest paid wingers in the league... 5.5 would be top 15. I know a lot of those deals were signed a few years back... but off the last two years as well 4.5+ is reserved for guys who are 50+ pointers, and 5+ for 60 point guys.

Though the Leafs did their damn best to ruin that for everyone.
