I don't even know who the hell this guy is. Who cares what anyone says. I'm glad everyone thinks we suck, maybe now they'll be no expectations.
They, uh...*ahem*...have a message board at that link...I can't recommend you go there en masse and begin flaming the hell out of him, but uhh...I can't, like, stop you...should you all decide on your own to go over there and rip him a new one.
Ok, he suggests Stillman's contract was bad? are you kidding me right now? Rolston, Ryder, Naslund and Fedorov will all be making more money than him and let's take a look at last season's stats...
Brian Rolston 31g 28a 59 pts in 81 games (5mill)
Markus Naslund 25g 30a 55 pts in 82 games (4 mill)
Sergei Fedorov 11g 30a 41 pts in 68 games (4 mill)
Michael Ryder had a terrible season (4 mill)
Cory Stillman 24 g 41a 65 pts in 79 games (3.5 mill)
OK, Greg Wysynshy, nice comment, next time make sure you know what you're talking about...
Wow. That's incredible. Sergei was terrible last year as was Ryder and each got over 4 mil. Wow.
I will say that Yahoo or not, how many big name FAs have we attracted over the years? Not many...you just don't hear guys chomping at the bit to play here. Part of the reason is our frugal ownership, then you have the losing & lack of hockey history, & then you have the turnstile of management. Our organization has a way to go before earning the respect of anyone.
