I never understood why fans were happy with the Upshall signing. His contract is awful relative to his actual contributions. Intangibles don't merit that contract.

Flash is what he is. On a good team where he isn't expected to be the guy, he provides very useful complimentary scoring. It's not really fair to judge him in the situation he finds himself. He's not worth the money we pay him, but then we've put him in an impossible position to succeed.

Filppula would be a good signing, although again inspite of flashes, he isn't a player you build offense around. Excellent complimentary forward.

Florida will always have this problem as long as the situation remains the same. Being a bad team, we have to overpay to acquire players who aren't capable of running NHL offensive systems by themselves. Thus, we crab on them inspite of a situation where it's really hard to succeed in.

The only way to break this cycle is to draft well. Our success relies on our scouts. It's really as simple as that.
