I wouldn`t say under paying , but clearly Cujo/Belfour to the Leafs , by standing on their head for 10-20 points a year , and carrying them to those extra playoff rounds , more than paid off thier salaries , and more. It is strange how the owners get the shaft 95% of the time for thier stupidity , while 5% the player and owner
get a win win, team improves, player earns his keep. This league is moving to an NFL type scale , a few make a big chunk of the cap, the rest scramble for scraps .
It will create a problem in the dressing rooms in time.
