"Overpayment" as a code word for not wanting tough players, seriously? Gionta and Gorges are described as overpaid too, is that because the secret cabal of Gauthier loving pacifists things Gionta and Gorges are too tough?

Pretty much everyone who signs with Montreal is accused of being overpaid, and usually it's at least half true. Outbidding the competition for someones services, which we did in the case of Prust and Cole, means they were being paid above market rate elsewhere. Does that mean they weren't the right FA signings at the time? No, it means they were overpaid.

And I have no idea what Murray has to do with anything, Murray has as many fights as Emelin and "pacifist" Travis Moen. Last year he had one fight; in fact he's only had more than a few fights once in his career, back in 07/08. The Pens overpaid (which they did) for Murray so he can stand in front of the net and get hit by pucks, not to fight. I guess the grand Gautheir conspiracy hates shot blocking and clearing the crease too, which explains why Gauthier made a similar trade (giving up less!) for Sopel and Mara.
