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
You sure love to pick and choose meaningless points and make stupid assumptions.If Poms joined a basement team he would score more, because he'd be given more ice-time seeing as he would be on a garbage team.

Let's go through your "sweet" list.

# of 60 point seasons:


So let's see, Poms has the most 60+ point seasons, is at the top with Richards in terms of 2 way play and is also the most durable.Good job adding a ELC into there champ, you really love twisting numbers don't ya, you should work for the IRS.Richards makes 5.7 over 12 years, really good comparison

Drop the whole vendetta, Poms would be your best player if you got him for a 4th liner and a 2nd round pick.Your team hasn't had a 70 point scorer in nearly 10 YEARS
