    Not undeserved for a soon to be 26 year old who just put up 81 points. Columbus really effed that trade up big time.

    Not much of a track record. Still has more bad years than good to his name.

    While this is true, his trend points upward the last four years (minus a small dip between years three and four), and they didn't have much of a choice here — he's 26 and one year away from unrestricted free agency, where he no doubt would have cashed in for $8M+ on a long-term deal somewhere, from someone considering he's going to play another full season with Claude Giroux as his center again this coming year.

    Besides, find me a player in this league who signed a contract after going P/GP that didn't get, in effect, max dollars?

    Don't most 26 year Olds have more bad years than good?

    Left? Probably. Depends on the situation, and what you would call "bad". I mean, 30-year old Rick Nash just scored more goals than 24-year old Rick Nash did. Because the circumstances were different/better for him. Generally speaking he's leaving his prime within two years, but the type of game he plays with the quality of players he plays with, it's not that likely he just collapses. Not while he's got Claude Giroux and probably Michael Raffl next season.

    @frank_seravalli: Interestingly, Voracek was NOT given any no-trade or no-movement clauses from #Flyers. #TSN

    I don't really care to answer any of your pointed rebuttals to my flippant nonfactual statement.
