I agree. Every team has at least one player that they are overpaying for the skills and services provided. We are blessed to have just big E.
I've never been a big Ericsson fan, but I don't blame Holland for his contract. It was based more on the over inflated market for guys like Wisniewski and Ehrhoff, than his skills.
Crymson already mentioned it: The market was weak and over inflated, Kindl and Smith were unproven, and Rafalski retired.
