Well, there are also an amazing number of idiots in the world.

If Wisniewski is healthy and playing at his normal level, what's he worth? $2 mil? $3 mil? $4 mil? The general consensus has been somewhere in the $4.75 to $5 mil range, which means that he's about $500K to $750K over market value. Frankly, big ****ing deal.

It's five prime years of a very good offensive defenseman. Not a guy who's past his prime like Markov, Timonen, Gonchar, Visnovsky, Boyle; ALL of them are making more than Wisniewski, and all of them are either worse right now or will be worse next year and until the end of time. Not a guy who's not there yet and whose play has mysteriously plummeted (Mike Green and Tyler Myers).
