If Rick was putting up 35-40 win seasons it would be one of the better contracts in the history of the NHL.
The problem is you can't praise Wang for saying it would have been a great contract IF Ricky lived up to his potential but then also say it's not fair to bash Wang because Ricky did not. Everyone knew it was a high-risk/high-reward deal at the time and unfortunately for us we got burned. Wang must take the blame for that.
