your point ?

Yeah, but Kariya and Selanne are worth more than 7 mil combined. That's an unhealthy side effect of our flawed system we have now. Teams with huge budgets can afford stacked teams, essentially created a system of "have" and "have not" teams. Players will obviously want to flock to the "have" teams for a better chance of winning a Cup, even to the point of reducing their value for these teams. Kariya didn't want to sign with Anaheim for millions but he offered to sign with a stacked team for peanuts. That's not right.
