Firstly, sorry for sounding like a troll. I understand what you're saying...I do partly agree with you. Leclair is being paid what he is because he was so underpaid for so long. From what I remember?? Gratton's Philly contract was signing bonus heavy...Really with the exception of Leclair, most of our top players are in the 4-7 million dollar range. I think although we're in the spenders of the league...we can hardly be blamed for the state of the NHL...let's blame the Rangers. Just kidding, let's blame greedy players and agents...and Bettman, cause he can't skate but he runs the greatest league on Ice.
I apologize as well. The Flyers aren't the worst team when it comes to spending, but they certainly aren't the best. The LeClair deal looks especially foolish because of his injury woes. Gratton's deal was worth $55 million, but I forget the length of it.
