I'm not going out on a limb with that statement. It's commonly accepted that he has a terrible contract.


So what your saying is that Luongo is not the _caliber_ of a player like a Hossa or a Kovalchuk? Is that what you are saying? Or he is not the caliber of player the likes of Lundqvist or Miller or Rinne? Because those are his peers. He's not a medium asset. He's a high end asset. That's why he got the contract he got.



It's commonly accepted that it's a terrible contract? Can you tell me why Bettman is punishing a terrible contract? If they were terrible, why would they be attacked the way they have? It seems the common perception, which I don't agree that it is common, needs to be re-evaluated in that case.
