No, of course you're not missing anything, but most 30-40 goal scorers that make over $5M make the other players around them better. You don't pay a guy that kind of money when it is a requirement that he play with real good players in order to attain those kind of numbers.

For the record, I would be fine with paying a guy like Cammalleri around $4M a season, but no way would I give him over $5M.
