Im not debasing him as a player, Im debasing the notion that hes an 80 point player, if you were to say hes a 60-70 point player and based your argument as such, we'd have no problem. Your whole argument is based on a statistical outlier. Thats what im debasing.

pominville had 62 points last year, your building a case built on smoke and mirrors, do the same breakdown among 62 point scorers and you find that Pominville is grossly overpaid

Jussi Jokinen, LW 1,500,000
Antoine Vermette, C 3,000,000
Wojtek Wolski, LW 3,100,000
Tim Connolly, C 4,500,000
Bobby Ryan, RW 1,921,667
Chris Stewart, RW 850,000
Dustin Penner, LW 4,250,000
Kristian Huselius, LW 4,750,000
Mike Richards, C 5,750,000
Jason Pominville, RW 5,300,000

that grouping of 62-65 point scorers averages $3,392,166 therefore Pominville is overpaid by closer to basically 1.9M off last years production. even taking out Stewart, who is a statistical anonomaly the Average is 3,674,629 which makes him overpaid by 1.6M

yet my argument is that he wouldnt put up even 62 points on the Islanders 2nd line, (Which is where he would logically play) making his contract even more outlandish in terms of his production. Would he improve us ? yes most certainly. but The cost in terms of finances and players is prohibitive and certainly not wise
