I'm not asking why Lou, and management were okay with it. I'm asking why some fans did not want Gionta for that money who went on to score 28, and 29 goals in the two healthy years he played on that contract, but were cool with Volchenkov who doesn't bring hardly any scoring for $4.2? I think this is a valid question.
I had the same question about letting Rafalski walk for $6M and then signing Rolston for $5M. Different offseasons, though, so its hard to compare.

We could certainly use Gionta now.
