I strongly disagree with this logic. Yes all the fans are paying him. People watching TV are paying him. He gets a chunk of all of that.

The cap hit argument is irrelevant. There's a serious problem with this guy getting the money he is but because you're not at the cliff yet it doesn't matter? Eventually it will be a problem whether it straps us because of future contracts or the fact that some players think they're entitled to more money because of what Horcoff got.

The contract aside now, the guy deserves every bit of hate he gets. He doesn't hit, he doesn't fight, he doesnt score, he doesnt get points. What does he do other than win faceoffs? He is next to ****ing useless, however because our center depth is so bad people think that we need him or something.
