It's always hard to take these guys seriously when they say things like this:

"Liles played well in the first half, signed a new deal, and hasn’t matched it since: He has three years and $12.7 million to go".

What's the problem you ask? Well let's start with what he's insinuating: Liles signed a new contract and is now floating. Now let's move on to some facts. Why was Liles out of the lineup? Why that would be because of a concussion, you know, the thing that has kept the best player in the game off the ice for about 2 years now. How about another fact: Liles signed for LESS than he currently makes and most assuredly less than market value.

This is the kind of stuff these guys write and many around here eat up. Pure speculation with not very subtle under tones and little fact.
