It just seems to me that teams are so afraid of the cap that they're signing their guys to these grossly inflated deals. It's really sad.
Some people don't understand...

How much money do you think he made this franchise in the two playoff runs? How much did his play build us from a struggling small market team to a community mainstay with a great fan base.. JR said this contract is more about what he has done for the franchise already than what he is going to do... You can't argue he's worth less than $5 mil, so consider the other $1 mil a year as a thank you for the cup and for building our fanbase...
