WTF mate?
The difference between the contracts is a lot smaller than the difference between the players' values. I don't understand what your problem is, beside paying a 4th defenseman 4,5 mil for 2 years.

To a small market team like Atlanta that 15 year deal would be the death of them. Regardless of cap hit actual money is to much for to long. So the player value becomes obsolete. Especially for a player that has proven not to help his team go to the next level. Neither has Hainsey but 2 years is a hell of alot less then the 15 we would be stuck paying for.

That's the price you pay when you outbid everyone else for his services...look more like they made the deal with the Devil as opposed to the other way around.

They didn't outbid anyone though if I am not mistaken. They were just the first team to give into Kovalchuk's ridiculous contract demands.

Of which, the only other team to meet would have been the New York Islanders (where Kovalchuk wasn't going) or the KHL (where Kovalchuk was also not going).

Tallinder - Abysmal.
Corrente - Has no idea how to play in our own end.
Greene - Arguably the most disappointing player this season.
Taormina - Looked good. Then got hurt and hasn't played since.
Urbom - Not NHL ready.
Salmela, Fraser, Fayne, Magnan, Eckford - Do I really need to continue?
all right fine you suck more than we do.
