If Mikko Koivu was a UFA this year...

So, when Mikko signed his deal last summer, there were opinions on both sides (good deal vs. overpaid) among us Wild fans and fans of other teams. Now that we have seen what players have been getting, what do we think Mikko would've gotten had he made it to UFA status this summer? With guys like Leino, Fleischman, and Erik Cole getting $4.5 and Richards not signing yet, would Koivu hit $7m ? $7.5m ? Would he have gotten $8m out of Pegula? I'm thinking we got a hell of a deal.

I thought about that a few times today aswell. I think it is safe to assume that there would've been atleast a half dozen teams that would've offered him more than what he is making now.

Tough to say without a Richards signing yet, but I could see 7-8 million.
