The numbers are just arbitrary though aren't they?
I mean everything is relative to the market and the market is base on the players available and the cap space teams are looking to spend.
That's it right there. I guarantee, $7 million for Vanek will look like a steal in a year's time. None of the players or agents expected the cap to go up and such an astonishing rate (kind of calls into question the league's accounting heading into the lockout )
People's expectations of players' salaries is also not in step with the rise in the cap. I was very reticent about Nash at first because of the cap hit, but now that I consider what the few UFAs this year will be getting on the open market, Nash is actually a fair price.
Put it this way - Parise will get around what Nash got. Who would you rather have?
