Him getting scratched for not performing up to what is expected wont be accepted, and that is sadly the fact.
I'm not disagreeing with the risk..but I don't know any business without risk. They have models that assess risk...as well as policies (Risk management). JVR and Giroux are the logical choices to place your bets....one obviously has a more weighted avg to success than the other. Not many choices given their age and "potential" ceilings. Again think of them as blue chip stocks..you have to take into account P/E ratios etc when deciding to invest in a stock..this is no different unless you want to run the risk of even more overpayment for aged veterans who have already reached their peak in most cases but still command a higher salary and cap hit. Managing a cap that way is not ideal.
