his AHL numbers are decent but this guy can't score for shit in the nhl level

I wonder if these overpayments are tied to how much some of the top players are signing for. Toews/Kane getting 10.5 so a player like Saad getting 60% of what they make might seem reasonable in an agents eyes.
A lot of money for those two....
With the cap going up, expect player salaries to go up as well
Thing with lack is, as he is unproven the Canucks probably could have just held on to him, signed him to a value extension, then trade him at the deadline etc.
Not like markstrom had any pull in the situation, what's the difference between losing a disgruntled markstrom for a 4th or 5th rounder than what we got for lack?
Lack probably would have wanted something around 4M for 4 yrs, not exactly a value or bridge contact. If canucks didn't give him that, then he'd leave as UFA and we wouldn't even get a used jock for him in return.
