In Topic: Who has the best Contract in the League?

A lot of guys on their entry-level deals tongue.gif

Taking out them, I'll go with Mikko Koivu's at a 3.25 cap number, although he's FA after next year. Really though, pretty hard to argue with Parise, although in terms of real money, he jumps to 5 next year. The issue to me with both of these guys is length...although if you're looking for a star player locked in for 3 million for the next 10 years, you're going to be looking for a while. Tim Thomas is in at 5.0 through 2013, so that's pretty good too.

Homerish call alert, but I think Datsyuk is waaay under market value.

In Topic: Thoughts on Eric Lindros

I'm not sure I buy the "pick least deserving player in the Hall and compare" argument. If that's how we're going to do it, all that's going to do if further crapify things over time. You don't like Neely and Anderson being in? Well, get ready for legions of similarly-qualified guys who did the absolute minimum, if others think that way.

To me, it's sort of like when jersey retirement comes up, the old "if you have to make the argument, the answer is no" line. I realize that's not the HOF's philosophy, but to me, "should he" and "will he" are two different questions. I'm inclined to say "no" and "yes."

That said, Lindros was flat-out dominant for a few years, no argument whatsoever on that point.

In Topic: Chicago chants "Detroit Sucks" when Hawks play other teams?

It's pretty much a law of nature that the most obnoxious fans are the ones who are recently successful after sucking for a while <cough>Pens<cough>Hawks. Wings fans were probably in this group in the 90s (it's sort of hard to tell from the inside), but now "complacent" is probably a more accurate description.

I've never heard anyone chant "Jackets suck," so I'm going to take it as an honor. If they care enough about you to say you suck, you must be doing something right.
