Duke makes an excellent point, which I think needs to be elaborated on. If you pay a third line center who produces 20 points a year 3 mill a year. What happens when a 80 point first line player becomes a FA? He's going to point to the 3rd liner and claim he should earn 12 mil a year, since he's 4 times as productive.
Everything is connected, you can't overpay one position and not others...

return on true north's investment doesnt matter at all to me....

return on MY investment does matter to me quite a lot.....i will be investing $12k over the next 4 years just in tickets alone and the return on that investment will be the best team possible on the ice...

my investment isnt any better if the team is bad, but cheap for the owners...
Me and Chevy have one major thing in common, we want to win. Clearly we're never going to agree, I don't think overpaying someone cause you can is a good idea. Why get in the habit? Pay people what there market value is..
