Like I said, I'm still happy with this. I've said a lot of negative things about Cheveldayoff, but this was a success on his part. I remember Waddell letting Savard go because Savard wanted $4M per year, and Waddell thought it was overpayment. He was bashed for that over and over, more than any other move he made as GM (Except for the Zhitnik trade). I'd rather see our core overpaid than let go over $500,000-$1M.
Sorry, I disagree with you. Stajan and Langkow are being overpaid for sure.

But the guys I mentioned are not. That is the price that the market has put on 25-35 goal top 6 players.

I gave you guys making close to the same as Ladd. And those guys signed their contracts years ago. When they resign, it will be for more.

Can you name me 5 guys who bring the same thing to the table as Ladd (Stanley Cups, Leadership, Grit, 25-30 goals) that are making 3.5 million? The only guy I can think of is Dustin Brown and he is on the biggest sweetheart deal in the league.

This isn't 2000, or even 2005 anymore. Salaries go up. Where players in the 25-30 goal category were once making 2 million, and then 3 million, many are now making over 4. That's just the way salaries have been progressing.

It's like saying a certain house is not worth 500k. Maybe you don't think so, but if that is what everyone else is willing to pay for that house, then the market has dictated that the house is worth 500k.

Other comparables:
Kristian Huselius = 4.75
Antoine Vermette = 3.75
Brenden Morrow = 4.1
Michael Ryder = 3.5
Johan Franzen = 4.0
Shawn Horcoff = 5.5
etc, etc, etc....

Glad to see we have Ladd signed. I'd like to see how the Bogosian and Wheeler situations play out next.

This is a valid point. A good signing like this one makes it easier to sign others.

Is this one of the Ritchot properties that needs sandbagging when we activate the floodway? We don't want to lose one of our best players because he threw out his back building a dike.

No, that place is like a fortress against the river, a previous owner of it was "involved" with Powell Equipment. They had lots of access to heavy equipment, I think the whole fifty acres is dry during floods.....

No way on God's green earth, dude. We're keeping him forever.

Maybe you can work with the Islanders and try to get the rights to David Toews.
