Gomez, (awful contract) Connolly, and Getzlaf. Getzlaf only played 66 games and really shouldn't ever be in a conversation with Stajan. So the only real comparable person on the list you are talking about is Connolly. Otherwise you were trying to compare Stajan's salary to guys like: Zetterberg, Kopitar, Perry, Malkin, Alfredsson, Sedin, Kane etc to show that Stajan is at market value.

It's not fair to pick one statistic, pro rate it, then ignore all other factors. Otherwise I could go like this.

Stajan is on pace for 3 goals this year. He is making way more then market value because other forwards at 3 goals from last year include, Laperriere, Pahlsson, Conroy, Mayers, Sjostrom.

You can make stats show almost anything you want.
read all my posts... I addressed his goals...

or how about your boy Whitney... he is on pace for 0 goals... doesn't make his asissts less impressive
