In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
Here come the "overpaid" posts.
You need goals to win. The more goals a player can score, the more valuable he is. Kessel is 7th overall (119 goals) since being traded.
The money is reasonable. The length (as usual) is absurd.
Define "win" - in the playoffs or regular season?
Looking over the last few cup winners in Boston, Chicago and LA, their approach is a much more balanced handling of their salary cap. It seems the teams with the big contracts haven't had that much playoff success recently, like the teams that have Ovechkin and Crosby.

Carter and the Flyers agreed to an 11-year, $58 million contract extension, a source confirmed to ESPN.com
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins entered the NHL's free-agent signing period on Saturday with single-minded determination to land what the team considered the best defenseman on the market.
Once Zdeno Chara agreed to a five-year, $37.5 million contract, the Bruins quickly added one of the top free agent forwards available in center Marc Savard, who inked a four-year, $20 million deal.
