I don't understand the complete inability of some people to think a half step - not even 1 step, but a half step - into the future. Horcoff's contract should have been a lesson for the entire organization. Khabbi as well. At these levels especially, salary has 0 to do with whether a guy can feed his family/dogs. It has to do with how much a player feels valued by management. Next time Petry goes for negotiations, you think he's going to play nice? What about the young guys? Why take less when other guys get more than they're worth? I can't understand how people can't see the repercussions of a bad deal. Look how Chicago lost its chance at a dynasty. Why was Detroit so successful? Because no one could earn more than Lidstrom...
