It's pretty tough to argue with the logic even if you don't care the choice or the terms.

I think it's pretty shortsighted to gripe about the PP specialist who, even as the most maligned member of the squad, still has more PPP than Crosby, Malkin, Nash, Datsyuk, Iginla, etc, etc, etc, while Brashear earns half as much to be used as an "ice mop" by opponents on the rare occasions he even sees the ice.

Ales Kotalik is not hurting the NYR's cap position.
So this off season when we cannot sign a playmaker for 3 million because Kotaweak is eating up the money, you don't think there will be any pain? The guy was just a healthy scratch... healthy scratches for 3 million?!?!?
