These types of contracts are ruining the league. Look at the stupid contract that Bryan McCabe got a few years ago.....that bum is making $7 million a year and is only worth about $3. Overpaying players like that is stupid and its going to end up ruining the CBA.
If Wideman turns into a McCabe, I will agree with you. As it is I think the Bruins are investing in the future. The contracts that are ruining the league are the fat guys getting paid HUGE $$$ for the past and not delivering in the future. The trick is for the GM to figure out which guy they have.

PS: If you think McCabe is worth 3 mm then the Bruins definitely got a bargain at 3.95 for Wideman. JFJ chose poorly.
