Okay, while your sentiment is on target, could you be somewhat accurate with your information? Toronto offered Holik $8 million per for five years, and the Devils offered Holik $8.5 million for five years, but Holik took the $9 million per offered by the Rangers. Holik was going to get his money last year whether or not the Rangers were involved.
