By that logic Horcoff should be judged on the seasons he had before his big contract. This just makes no sense. There's a lot more wrong with this post but the basic premise is so ridiculous i won't bother to waste my time.



Proof? What did Bouwmeester do last year that was so muh more impressive? Is 5 more EVstrength points and his ability to ideally play 2nd unit PP worth that many millions more? Is it worth getting a guy who by the stats and eye is a clearly less capable defensive player? I like Bouwmeester and really do feel he's a #2 guy, like Smid, but his contrat is prohibitive and giving up Gagner for him when we have Smid is a very poor idea.
Read the posts I was responding to and the premise makes a lot more sense.
