And who was the genius who gave him a $3 million a year contract? Ohh. Never mind.

And another boring thread.

Anyway this one's for you Stranger. As I'm puttering around this morning I have the CBC on sorta watching their invention "Hockey Day in Canada." Usual CBC - some good, some bad, and some ugly. However, I had a good laugh when Ron McClean throws it over to PJ Stock who tells us that not only is it "Hockey Day in Canada" it's also "Hockey Day here in Quebec."

Maybe I missed something over night. LOL

And sorry W2 but it's really sad that one of the all Canadian match ups today is the Sens at the Oil. Laffs/Habs and Flickers/Nux should be entertaining though.

And HC if you're out there, TGO says you can kiss her (Tanner) Glass.

It was Glen Sather, but he was smart enough (I just said Sather was smart....) to unload him. It's amazing any GM would take him, but one was

The whole problem is 1/2 of every team gets paid way more than they are worth. Not just a player or two.

And the higher the top guys go the higher the plumbers go.

Salaries should not be linear.
