LOL Rusty isn't worth 1.75 million, but Shelley is worth 1.1. I can not take you serious anymore sorry.
Never did I say that Shelley was worth 1.1 mill, in fact he's not even making that as I've said before. He's making 900k or about half of what Rusty's making this year, and is making that due to a bidding war for heavyweights during the summer of 2010. Not saying he's worth THAT much but there's a simple explanation for it. Shelley would ideally be making close to league-minimum like most tough guys but 900k isn't too far off. Ideally in a perfect world:
That'd be what I'd want to pay a 20 point guy and a 4th line enforcer, but luckily this team has the money to pay people more. You should be thankful this team has the money for Shelley and Feds instead of criticizing a single guy who's making more money than you'd think he'd be making when several bottom-6 players are.
Busts his ass every shift, decent PKer. 15-35 points depending on his ice time. Turns it on in the playoffs. Has played more than 60 games every season. Guy is a class act. He really, REALLY wants to win another cup.
Only complaint is that I think we over payed him a little bit. Oh well. Love me some Fedex.
