Hell, Alex Burrows just got a deal that pays him $4.5 million per year for his 34 and 35 year old seasons and somehow the Sedins are supposed to take less for the same years?
While this person is calling for us to dump a ton of assets for the opportunity to pay a PPG player close to $10mil a season. Break the bank for perennial loser Alex Ovechkin but stiff-arm the 2 players that have led this team to it's most successful period in franchise history. Even Mike Milbury shutters at the thought of this.
