No, people fail to realize that there is a huge difference - 100 points from 2 roster spots or 80 from 1. Gives other players more ice time and a chance to put up some good numbers.
And preferbly when its 3 palyers for 1... lol
...like its not hard to find 3 players in this league whos combined output tops Malkin, but whom very few people would trade Malkin straight up for...
You are of course right on the flaws in the production thinking. I want to add one thing also, often, that one mega star is often cheaper in the long run than any option of 2-3 players too.
Rich Nash makes 7.8m per. That's 3.9m per for two palyers. Or 2.6m per for 3 players.
Like lets say that Dubinsky, Anisimov and Erixon somewhat meets their potential, over the course of the coming 7 years, with inflation and whatnot, I don't think its far fetched to expect them 3 to on avg make 4m per or a combined 12m per. Add to that a rookie contract with bonuses for the 1st round pick, you can add another couple of millions to the 3 mentioned in cap hit.
What is the result? Its basically
and 14m - 7.8m =
6.2 million of cap space
