Apparently they aren't bothering to teach the English language to English majors these days if that's what you think an "outburst" is.

23 pts isn't enough for $4M a year with 2.5 minutes of PP time a game. That's a simple fact. Both Meszaros and O'Donnell are enjoying the same +/- fun we saw with Kukkonen and Jones a few years back in the early going, and it will rectify itself over the course of the year.

At what point do we discuss the fact that a significant portion of our PP woes to date is that beyond Timonen and Pronger we've gotten NOTHING from our D on the PP? (Like, literally, none of 'em have a point on the PP.)

EDIT: And, for the record, if I put an anonymous UFA D in front of you that had put up 23 pts (with notable PP time) on the 3rd ranked offense in hockey, and he wasn't a defensive stopper (no, Meszaros is not a defensive stopper, both he and O'Donnell are benefiting from playing the easiest D shift on a very good team)... you're delusional if you're suggesting you'd sign that anonymous player to a $4M/year deal.
