The Calgary Flames resigned Matt Stajan to a four year deal today worth $3.5M a year.
You can read about it here.
That's a substantial raise for him and he's on pace right now to finish with 59 points. I suppose that's what $3.5M players do nowadays? It seems like a lot of money for a guy of his skill. I would have guessed he was more of a $2.7M/year kind of player.
Is it just me or do GM's regularly hand out bloated contracts? No wonder we end up with lockouts and strikes and teams losing money.
