    I thought that this year's product was what we could expect two or three years down the looooong road that is Kopitar's contract. I figured we would get at least three productive seasons out of the 8. I don't think anybody thought he would pull up lame immediately. It's such a bad sign, and it points towards his character. I said years 3-6 are likely what we would have seen from Handzus time here. Handzus showed up earlier than expected.

    I think there is a time and place for rewarding world class players top money, but it's not when your team is coming off a Cup run and you are in an obvious descent down the ladder. Well, that and that Kopitar isn't a $10 million player in any sense.
