Not sure what that has to do with my point.

When giving a player a big money contract, IMO it's reasonable to expect management to play said player in a matter that'll make giving so much money more worth while. For example, I fully expect Prust to hit career highs in icetime/game next season so he has full opportunity to make his contract seem worth it. Emelin got 2M so now I think (barring terrible play) it's less likely he'll be benched to make room for next season's 'Campoli' compared to last season when he was only making ~900k.
