Cammalleri is now the 10th highest paid winger in the game. I don't think anyone really looks at him as a top 10 or even top 25 winger in the game today.

He's a legit 1st liner and guy who will get you points, but he's not going to carry this team on his back and single-handedly take over games. He's an upgrade over Tanguay; a nice player who will be a scoring threat on your first line, but ultimately not the guy who is going be the go-to-guy in the playoffs.

But overpaying for free agents has become normal. All UFAs are "overpaid" and teams that go about restocking their rosters through free agency usually come away with a very pricey core.
