We overpaid for Kesler. I agree that Kesler is "WAY" better than Horcoff right now, but Horcoff put up 73 points in his contract year to earn his 5.5 per season.
I sure hope I'm wrong about Kes, but he's not getting it done the way a $5.5 million center should right now!
What about a $5.0 million center? Because I don't know where you got the extra half mil from.
The scoring race in the playoffs goes Crosby, Pavelski, Cammalleri, Samuelsson, Datsyuk, Richards, Zetterberg, Sedin, Ovechkin, Toews, Franzen, Sedin, Kane, Backstrom, Briere, Malkin, Satan, Clowe, Boyle, Kesler, and Heatley. With the exception of Samuelsson, Satan, and Clowe, all those guys make around 5 mil (or more), or are about to.
