And that's probably the right way to look at it. My problem is that I'm still trying to find a way of looking at salary structures and pay scales, and the closest I can think of right now is the late 90s, where centers and D got massive deals. Guys like Jagr still got huge deals, but the old man in me says Perry's no Jagr.

With the cap/floor system, you're probably just going to have to spend, though -especially if players continue to not hit free agency.

I think the only people willing to offer Parise $100m+ were a few message board posters (and maybe Paul Holmgren ). I don't remember hearing of any offers that high actually given to him.
I don't think you need the sarcasm smilie next to Holmgren.
