What does his salary have to do with anything? I stipulated in my post I was choosing the best players for their abilities, salary not withstanding.

Holik's a player that a team can have as a core player and be successful. With defense being the name of the game, you need top defensive players to excel. This is why the John Maddens and Bobby Holiks of the league are highly sought after commodities and some lists here reflect their importance in today's NHL.
