Not sure why you would feel bad for him. He is set for life. He would never have earned what he is due to make over his entire NHL career had the Isles leadership not offered him such a crazy contract. The injuries he has sustained still would have occurred without the contract and I expect he would have been out of the NHL by now because of them if he were not making the money that he is.

The thing I will never understand is why the Isles offered such a contract to him in the first place? I mean were they not burned enough by the Yashin deal to know that something like this could happen to them?
