    They've got to get to the floor so they have to spend.

    Yea I know that, but Dale is raising the bar for other FA's and its probably going to price the Hawks out on some guys they could get for cheaper.

    Very true, but paying Kopecky $3Million a year is ridiculous. Paying Kopecky $3Million a year for 4 years is beyond ridiculous!

    If he wants to get to the floor, there are a whole lot better ways to do it. A 1 year deal for someone, overpaying for a stud. I don't get paying mid level talent about 2 times what they are worth. Just stupid. Florida could even try to get to the floor by trading for a Wade Redden or Huet where it would be something like...Overpaid Player + 2nd for a 3rd. They get to the floor but improve their future, because we all know Florida isn't going to be a contender for a while. Just makes no sense.

    Yeah, it seem's to be a bi-product of the new NHL. Essentially you will have mid level guys chosing to be over paid to go to bad teams or to take less to play for a winner.

    Dupuis and Kopecky put up basically the same numbers last year (both played with pretty equal linemates) and Dupuis is getting 3 million over 2 years. Kopecky is getting 3 million a year for 4 years...just ridiculous! And quite frankly, Kopecky doesn't bring that much more to the table overall than Dupuis.

    Wow, thats a tad bit high. Hope this doesn't negatively impact the rest of the F/A market.

    You know, i dont really think that would be the case. I think majority of NHL players would take less money to get a ring. The only reason Kopecky signed that deal with Florida was because he got no interest from any other team.

    Kopy and Dale are making a bed on that cap floor bed, and they'll most certainly lay in it.

    That's terrible for Florida. As Boom! said go after better UFA'S if you need to spend a certain amount. Richards, Kaberle, or Wiz for example. But singing Kopy just too spend is just a sign of a very dumb gm.
