I initially was a little hesitant on spending that much on him. It would have been nice if we could have seen if he could back up last years elite level of play this year. I have read a few articles that suggest the money was spent with the feelings being that the cap will continue to be inflated up to around 80mil in time for the big contracts in a few years time. I can't wait for hockey season to start. Last season was a technological breakthru for me (I may be 26 but I suck with technology); gamecentre and a DVI cable means I can actually watch hockey for once instead of just listening to the radio streams. 67 days till my first (and probably last for a long time) live blackhawks game!
