and there's a lot more... half of these overpaid players being signed by small market teams...
so really ?
reality is, it's f***ing simple: if you can't afford a 10 Mil player -> DONT SIGN ONE.
I guess it depends on what you define as overpay, but it's understood that smaller markets have to overpay to get players to go there, they don't necessarily raise market values.
I think what people are referring to is the Gomez/Redden/Bryzgalov/Luoungo/Vinny type contracts. Overpaid longterm, Souray was only 4 year contract and he wasn't overpaid that much at the time he signed it
