Not that I was really having a hard time, since I didn't want to give it to him, but it's a bitter feeling, choosing between watching a homegrown crowd favorite whose jersey you've owned since before the A become a vilified, overpaid albatross or sending them packing. The notion of signing a guy to a six year deal with 6M+ per year, knowing full well that, especially on this roster, he's probably never going to even hit 50 points in one season on that contract puts it into perspective though and really reinforces why he shouldn't be re-signed. For me, at least, since I don't see him hitting 50.
Cally is as good player now as he ever has been, probably the best player now that he ever has been.
We play a diffrent style, and Cally has found himself behind Nash and Zucc. Who scores 50 on a 3rd line?
