Yes there is a huge difference, jesus christ. Jbow might not get the points he used to, but he is not that bad, even for that contract.
No... Just no. I agree J-Bo is better than what's available (although not by that much), but he's no #1 dman. He gets overvalued by Flames fans just as much as he gets undervalued by other fans. He is what he is, a soft, overpaid #3 dman who will provide a steady presence to your blueline and can log a lot of minutes
