Good for Matt but is it good for hockey?

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.

  33. I believe everything posted made a ton of sense.
    But, think on this, suppose you added a little content?
    I ain't saying your information isn't solid, but what if you added a title to possibly get
    folk's attention? I mean "Good for Matt but is it good for hockey?" is a little vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and watch
    how they create post titles to grab people interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic
    or two to grab people excited about what you've written. Just my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.
