It's a theory that has been proven wrong repeatedly.

You can say this but it's a cop out. 32 goals is good but not elite. 65 pts is good but not elite. 7.8m cap hit demands elite production in my opinion. I'd save our assets for the guy who is paid appropriately. Go pay Anaheim what they want for Ryan, go sign Parise, wait for the next star, or just whatever. But I wouldn't cash in now for this player on this contract. Or just do nothing. We are first in the east and almost 1st in the NHL - we have the system, the strategy, and the players to win now. We don't have to do this.
Aside from 2 low scoring seasons (05-06 and 06-07) he's been in the Top 20 for goal scoring.
