Now this was only 2 mil more than Drury but also before a salary cap NHL when it didn't matter if you had all 12 fowards making 9 mil per season. The offesne he does have this season has come in chunks with him going through some cold spells. Not the guy I wanted when we signed him at 7 mil per.
He's not the guy anyone wanted for 7 mil per, this argument has been brought up not one by thousands of times, everyone on this board is well aware of what he's making, and what Gomez is making, and what Vanek is making, and Briere, etc...
Are they worthy of their contracts?
Were they already signed?
Can you do anything about it?
Take it for what it is and stop worrying about their cap hit and worry about their play, we know they aren't worth their contracts, but look at how they played beforehand and how they aren't playing now and how they are helping the team, not their cap hit.
