What's ludicrous about them?

You're telling me you wouldn't rather have Witt at just over $2 million then let's say Stillman at 3.9? or some other soft forward at 3+ million (Bure, Czerkawski, etc in the past.)

If anything defensive defenseman have completely gotten the shaft in the past compared to their actual value to the team.
