And young guys are sent down for more seasoning. So, to try and make it that simple is ridiculous.
but the fact is that your point on the salaries is off, simply through the Redden case study.

Rozy is not here because he makes more money, he is here because he is currently a better defensive defenseman than all but two of our dmen. He has also been our best defenseman on the power play every season but last, and re-took the top position this year before his injury.

Some people dislike Rozsival simply because he doesnt awe in any area of his game, and thats truly unfair to balanced defensemen.
