Was I obsequiously complimentary to Franzen? Hell, no... just like you would not be complimentary to Backes or any other Blue that has been a thorn in your team's side for several years.

Well at least you admit you're bias (bolded), and it's this fact that has people jumping on you and your opinion.
That, and "I wouldn't give you a dime for him..." is pretty obviously an attempt to be inflammatory. As a mod, you should of known exactly the reaction you were going to garner.

No matter how much I, or others, agree with you that non-elite players should not get more than $5million/yr, it doesn't change the fact that they do.
- Smyth, Havlat, Perry, Tanguay, Rolston, Nylander (and countless Dmen)... and few others depending on your personal definition of elite.
So that argument is essentially irrelevant.
