ya actually burrows must feel like crap right now, i remember kes is the one saying everyone should take a pay cut to keep a good team together, then burr signs for 2 mil. Then, BOOM kesler 5 mil. Which to me is a debatable deal. It's probably his market value without a hometown discount. So... i donno... if he wasn't gonna take a discount contract then don't start the talk in the first place.
Not taking away from the player that he is but i feel like he is a lot of talk both on and off the ice.
On a side note, anyone know how much BMO took during the westcoast express years?
Kesler (5 mil) is 10th on the scoring list 66pts for centerman,centerman ahead of him Malkin 8.7 69pts,Stastny 6.6mil 70pts,Kopitar 6.8mil 71pts, Richards 7.8 mil 77pts,Thorton 7.2mil 82pts, Stamkos3.75mil rfa 2011/2012--play wing or center???, Backstrom 2.4 mil ufa 87pts, Crosby 8.7 mil 87pts, Sedin 6.1 mil 94 pts
Considering that kesler plays 2nd line minutes compared to all those guys playing 1st line minutes he is a super bargin....and can anybody on that list touch him --two way????
overall he is 21st overall less one dman he is 20th overall...less both Sedins (on his team)he is 18th overall---smokin deal
another way to look at it. Crosby,Malkin 17.4mil Ovie,semin(backstrom next year) 15 mil,
Chi Kane Toews 12.6mil, Sedin,kesler 11.1 mil-----all long contracts except the van duo
