When I wrote this piece back in November, and its follow up piece here, there were quite a few people who were interested, but wanted to see the numbers redone at the end of the season. So, here it is.

Similarly in this piece there was a chart comparing the production of our 7 million dollar forwards to all the other 7 million dollar forwards I could remember. Here are the updated results:

Being a stat lover I rank them by the equalized numbers rather than actual production so you know how valuable the player is when healthy. But even ranking them by actual production all it does is improve the ranking of Scotty Gomez by 1 and drop Sid the Kid by 2 spots, but nobody in their right mind would take Gomez over Sidney.

There you have it friends, weve got 2 players that are definitely on the overpaid end of things. Are the contracts worth it? Well, I’ll let you make that call.
