Yeah, that's not hard. If you really need an answer to that - which I really don't think you do - I think I'd offer that, but I'd put that in the "Fire Murray" thread, although I hate resurrecting that one myself, for little reason.

Well, we don't pay him up front. So it's still "just" $4M this year, and $3.5M the next two. I agree that that's too much for him, but saying money isn't an issue because we can afford that seems a little off. If there's other guys that we could get for that money and that would provide similar or more help, sure, I'll be with you, but I have a hard time seeing that.

Well, that's what I don't get. How has yesterday done anyhting to sing the tune of a team being "dismantled"? We lost an enforcer that was loved, but didn't positively impact the game, at all, and a #6 defenseman that went on the open market. We signed a couple of defenseman that fit a need that basically everyone agreed upon before. Yes, the Souray one feels to about everyone as overpayment. But saying that he "can't contribute" (anything / in any way) to this team before he even laces them up for a practise seems just wrong and unfair. We're a better team than we were yesteray. If we want to put Visnovsky into that equasion, that makes it tougher, but there's a few things to consider, and I'll just point to what's been said in the trade board thread on this signing.
