You guys are still viewing salaries they way they were pre-lockout.
I think a guy like Forsberg or Naslund is going to make more then 5 million. I heard that to but I don't buy it. How can you say were viewing the salaries like back in pre-lockout mode when Palffy was making like 7 million in his final year. I think guys like Palffy, Kovalev, Demitra, Zhamnov, Kariya etc., will go for about 4-5 million a year. Don't forget the most a player can make is about 7.8 and if, your Forsberg arguably, the best player in the game, I'm sure you would demand that and get something close to it from a team.
