Like a Derian Hatcher, Mattias Norström or Ed Jovanovski -- with thoose types you are basically paying 5-6m per for players that your team would be better without.
Fair enough but we're gonna feel the hurt of overpaying when we have to let someone key walk, or pass up on an elite player because we are up against the cap.

As I said before, it may already have happened in the cases of Jagr and Avery.
