Paying for potential is fine when we're dealing with prospects and like I said pace should count for something but paying for what might have happened is dangerous.

I am not a fan of the deal not from Anaheim's perspective, I'm not a fan of the deal because guys like Spezza and Giroux will be able to say "well Getzlaf got X and I actually produced! I should get X+!" and they will be absolutely correct.
