Now, if we go back about ten years, I don't think anyone considered Colorado a small market team, did they? Weber's may be the first case of a small market team actually taking the poison pill.
Colorado wasn't considered big market either. They are/were a mid-range market.
Toronto, NY, etc. are considered big market.
Ergo, what he said was correct.
Sakic, in a mid-market, made much more than Lindros who was in a large market.
