Is everyone forgetting that Meszaros has a cap hit of $4.0M and another contract did not go the other way in that deal? I know people are upset about Gagne possibly being dealt but blaming the signings of Shelley and O'Donnell is pretty silly. He would clearly be pushed out because of Meszaros and not Shelley or O'Donnell.
Jody Shelley is getting 1.1mil for ~4min a night. That to me is ridiculous. I'd rather have Ivanans at 575k like the Flames.
