Partially, but the argument was against the production of these players if you give them a long-term contract while they're in their 30's. I don't think Lidstrom, Selanne or St. Louis are good examples. They are prime talents on prime teams for the most part.

Every NYR fan is scared of those contracts because it seems that every player that comes to NYR (star or not) does not thrive here. There's only a few that do. That's really the scary part.

It seems a 100 pt player on Detroit is equal to a 70 point player here. It seems ridiculous, but it's just funny because I don't think it's much of a misconception.
