Just running through some numbers of players, I find it really surprising how much people are overvaluing players cost and salary wise. I think we should really have a discussion on this, because I believe we may think that costs of players are above what they should be, even with a rising market. Here's a link to the top salary players and you can search around for better listings or longer lists somehow(I'm too tired to look):
But just one quick observation based on running through some cap hits, it looks to me like top line forwards "should" only on average make around $5mil/yr. And a another small quick one, #1 d-men should only be making $5mil/yr+ on average, not the lower d-men, some examples: the Paul Martin's, the Rozsival's, the Komisareks(4.5mil is overpaying even if he was a middle pair guy), and definitely not the Ballard's. I'm too tired to go in-depth here on everything, but will do in the near future(tomorrow probs).
What do you think? and Discuss.
