JJ is making the same as Marc Staal arguably the best shut down d man in teh game right now ... Jorges is not in his class ...
But at NO POINT in his career was Rashard Lewis even close to being the best player in the game. That contract has always been viewed as a joke.

You want a very average player who is massively overpaid? Joe Johnson? I believe he's the leagues 7th highest paid player. That's a joke

Go over EVERY roster in EVERY league, and you'll find overpaid players...its not reserved only for NHL teams

and of all the examples of overpaid players...if the most egregious example you can find is Josh Gorges, I suggest you look again
