Another point: I think people get nervous about the cap because they remember Chicago's situation all too well... but we don't actually have any bad contracts like they did. Campbell for 7M and I can't remember what Huet and Bulin wall were making. They had a couple of powerpaid contracts that were really holding the down.

One could debate Hemsky being worth 5M, Nick Schultz being worth 3.5M, Ryan Smyth being worth 2M and if Eberle is going to earn his 6M next year(I think he will), but we don't have any players that are being overpaid on the scale that those Hawks were.

We need to remember that.
