Not sure. Somehow Scott Gomez always makes it in the top 10 too!
I was just thinking of something in retrospect since there's not much else to do hockey wise. Supposed we kept Scott Niedermayer in 2005 for that massive contract. The maximum we could have given him. If we had there's no way we keep Marty, and Patty both. We would have lost one of them. Probably Marty would have still stayed, but Patrik would have left somewhere else cause we couldn't have afforded to give him that with Niedermayer. Then there was the $5 million awarded to Gomez in arbitration that Summer too.
Short term we would have made out better keeping Scott, but long term Patty for sure. Niedermayer retired over 2 years ago now. He still would have retired in 2010 had he stayed with us. Patty would be playing on the contract he is now somewhere else. Probably across the Hudson. Patty was the 10th highest scorer in the league last year.
