Good point , the bottoml ine is the players want no risk in any deals. If he signs for
$ 2 mil and plays like crap ,he gets paid , if he plays as expected , he gets his 2 mil
if he plays above, he squawks and gets an extension . The year later he goes back to mediocrity and now the extension you gave him is out of whack , because you expected more from him . But as long as the payer/agent get their scratch who cares if the owner gets the bad end of the deal . Until these ******** people in the hockey world wake up and collectivley be on the same page , this will never end .
