All I asked was for mrcrazycanuck to prove his point with supporting evidence since he tried to relate quotes about Penner and Hemsky to the kids. Until he can provide a link, from GM's, unequivacally stating we overvaule the kids he'll be challenged on that point.
That's fine, i wasn't really attacking your whole position. I was mostly stating it looks like neither player really was overvalued. If somebody is willing to pay the price they did for Penner then that's his value. If the Oilers were willing to give Hemsky 5 million a year then that's his value. In both cases both players reflected the value Edmonton priced them at. Hemsky still has things to prove but i think he's well on his way to justifying that contract. So i more or less agree with you that the whole overvaluing our players stuff is pretty much nonsense.
