Detroit paid Markov (top 4 defenseman) 2.5 last year after the feeding frenzy for DF subsided. Lilja steped up his game as of late and is playing like a top 4 dman for 1 million. All I'm saying is that in the salary cap era, overpaying for anything is a mistake. (Although I will say Kronwall's deal could be an overpayment. Time will tell).

I'll be surprised if Hannan commands 5 million.
