If there is one player I would offer to overpay slightly on this team besides Alfredsson I would give it to Fisher..

His extra effort deserves extra cash.. Atleast that is how it is in every job each of us has in our daily lives.

That's ok. A lot of people feel that way. But I like to believe they're simply poor judges of talent. I still think Fisher will put up another 20-25 goals and 50pts this year (barring any more injuries) which is more than good enough for a 2nd line centre given his linemates and the other elements of his game.

Don't bother responding, I'll do it for you:
Only 14pts in last 39 games plus 11:06 mins.

Only wins 50.2765% of his faceoffs.

Has only 98.95% mobility in his right knee due to injury.

Hair is 3.24 inches longer than I'd like it to be.

I don't mind the player, just the contract.

Maybe this year, i won't deny it, but based on the past, he is not a slow player. His skating is actually pretty decent. I dunno if he was injured or something but he is not his usual self.

If the the guy tries to go outside and chase the puck, spezza will simply bring the puck on the other side and so back to square one. If he tries to go inside, spezz'll curl back out towards the net with his man behind him.

I did my best to describe it :] Basically, he uses his reach and his body to perfection along the board.
Ya i noticed that. It's great. Now he just needs to do it consistently every game, every shift. When Spezza will "masterize" more puck-control along the boards, he will be hard to stop.
