i dont understand the obsession with value for money...all that matters to me is how can he help the team win games on the ice.

maybe i'm out of touch with being a fan these days....seems like i am supposed to care that the owners are getting value for their money....i couldn't care less what he makes...i care how he affects the team.
Have you been following hockey in the salary cap era?
