Boychuk is a good defenseman, don't get me wrong, but he's a lot like Brent Seabrook. He's good defensively, good enough offensively, and worked well within the system he was playing in. That said, he's not a superstar and shouldn't get paid like one.
Since Q is getting paid $4.25m I guess that for Boychuk $5m/$5,5m should be enough.
Ehrhoff is a smart guy. Signed 1 year deal with the high scoring team which made Niskanen look like an All Star Def... Next season, Ehrhoff will score 55-60 pts and then he will sign a new longer deal with a team of his choice...
