I'm sorry, T-fan - While I very much agree with the poster you replied to here, and at the same time very much disagree with the player over teams fans such as idlerlee(?) - you just seem so off when assessing Zucc.
Please back up why Zucc would struggle under a Torts? I seem to remember a guy producing at .5 ppg in his rookie campaign, killing corsi and fenqick, and since then having developed greatly as a defensively capable player.
2.5 per year? I would LOVE this contract so much I would want to marry it, but it just seems completely unreasonable. And for 5 years? While enjoying job security it pretty much ensures he will never get paid properly since he would be too old to demand top dollars when contract runs out.
I get the feeling you are playing the devils advocate and not wanting to be identified with the overly zealous Norwegian fans, but you seem equally blinded at times.
