You should really get that drug habit checked out, because your perception is in the gutters.

I think he was asking us for a salary that would have ended up with a cap hit of something like $5M. He has awful injury history, and while he brings good size and half-decent talent, he's inconsistent and paying $5M/year over several years is overpayment for a player like Antropov. Sharp puts up similar numbers, has little injury history, and has a cap hit of $3.9M.

The only thing he's pretty consistent in is playing under 65 games a year.

72GP
62GP
57GP
54GP
72GP
81GP
76GP

Just awful injury history. Any player that is actively getting knocked out for 20 games a year is someone I'd like to stay away from, unless it's generational talent. Gaborik has generational talent, and it was foreseen this year that his health had improved, and from the looks of it SO FAR, it has.
