I'm actually shocked that out of all the guys on this board, you would say that lol.

The reason that I've agreed with you a lot on Stastny is because he's the highest paid player on the team. I think it was intentional during Sakic's last years that he was making 6 mil and the top paid player on the team. It definitely signifies responsibility and expected production from a player.

If the highest paid player on a team is not pulling his weight with his contract, the other players definitely have a reason to demand more salary. Why wouldn't they?
