Actually the situations are comparable. The arguement was that it would be insanity to give the rookie max salary to a player that has yet to play the North American game and on a smaller surface. I just pointed out four examples where teams actually did just that. It's a gamble for sure... for every Brunnstrom or Leino that you find, there's a Dopita hiding around the corner but sometimes you just have to gamble.

Pesonen, as I already pointed out, you have an arguement against, but obviously you haven't been following Leino or been around the Wings board at all if you don't think that he's in the Wings' long-term plans.
