I completely agree and that wasn't my point. I apologize for not being clearer. Hockey, by nature is a physical sport. So you should be able to maintain your health somewhat while playing professionally.

I wasn't suggesting that you pay someone $5 mil to play physical, but Juicy and Pavs score more, are more consistent, younger, cheaper and can maintain a somewhat physical game. I don't want to spend $5 mil of our cap for the next few seasons on someone because they can skate well, be creative and fill a top 6 role.
