Contracts don't matter otherwise Antropov would have been 1st line C all year right?
Antropov would have spent the year in St. Johns if contracts didn't matter, they do that is why he was here. He really wasn't a typical 3rd or 4th line centre but at times found himslef there. Generally those types of guys don't make $4 + million a year.
The Jets brass have plenty of say in who is in the lineup. Gagnon will be there he is Chevy and Zinger's guy. Mc Cambridge is smart enough to realize this. There is lots of politics in hockey just ask the players.
Of course they could attempt to loan Gagnon out in an attempt to trade him when the lockout ends but they will not pay a player $500 000 to play in Colorado.
