A lot of people are crying 'overpayment'. But I'm not sure they are crunching the numbers. The Salary Cap continues to rise every year. It is heading towards double what it was a few years ago.

2006 - 39 million
2012 - 70 ish million

a $4 million contract in
2006 = 10.24% of cap
2012 = 5.71% of cap

Prices are going up, Ville "25 point" Leino is at 4.5/year for 6 years.

Oduyo is a solid defenseman, and he took a discount. Fans are unreasonable when it comes to these types of things.
