bottom line, however, is that the guys who put up the best numbers aren't necessarily the ones who should be earning the most.
true true... that's one thing i forgot about when typing this up... same thing was brought up last time... it'd be a stretch, but i think if something like u said could be worked out as incentives, as far as the locker room presence clause goes... i'd say it's pretty easy to figure out who the big leaders r in the locker rooms and i'd say that'd be factored into the base salary, i like the idea of the team goals .... the basis of my idea stems from the outrageous contracts of yashin/jagr and the overpaid role players ... for example devereaux .... hasn't lived up to his 1.4 mil salary last year then this year although showing good signs now, i still am leery of giving him 1.6 mil...but hopefully he proves me wrong this year and shows he deserves what he's making
