If the team wins, who cares if player X makes $2 million and player Y makes $4. There is nothing so far in Dubi's career that shows us that he won't be worth his contract over the next four years. We were freaking 20 and 30 games into this contract one year removed from him posting 25 goals and 54 points or whatever it was. That's without looking at everything else he brings into this team. It's just a joke.
Well put. I've often wondered why this is so hard to grasp. People can choose to be blind to things like chemistry. In the real world, moving players around and hoping that chemistry remains is very elusive. The value of having a group that stays together, learns and grows together can not be overstated but is often under valued.
