i think the problem with that article is the title more than anything else.

in all of the examples, he focused solely on the "value" of the contract as compared to the players recent production, nowhere does he really focus on the teams needs and wether or not the player will likely meet them.

I agree that Prust's contract is "bad", form the point of view of a rugged 3/4th liner with limited offensive upside... but from Montreal's pov, what Prust should bring to the team is worth the 2.5M$/4 years they gave him, even as a cap spending team.

in that regard, it isn't a "bad" signing, even if it's a "bad" contract.
