The guys making 6 mill plus are normally the ones expected to be the workhorses.
Pronger should be glad he's off the hook and can relax now come playoff time, thing that worries me though is that Timmonen and Briere are both a little undersized to be our teams "workhorses" should have signed some bigger bodies to carry the load
I don't think cap hit has anything to do with responsibility in this situation. The flyers entrusted and essentially gave the keys to the team for the next decade to Richards AND Carter, they both must perform IMO.
