But without some sort of restrictions, those names will be replaced by Iginla, Heatley, Hossa, Thornton, Jovo, Mccabe, etc., etc.

Pronger was qualified this summer at 10... I think Forsberg was offerred a contract at 10 plus .... wasn't he?? There's no restting of the high level with those offers....

It's not just the 10 million $ contracts though ... when a C.Gratton or Brian Boucher gets over 1.5 mill, T.Marchant, Nylander or Niewendyk get 3 mill, a Craig Conroy or Gary Roberts gets 3 & change, K.Primeau approaches 5, E.Belfour gets 8 mill, or Ziggy Pallfy turns down almost 7, there's still a lack of restraint throughout the salary scale.......
