[QUOTE]In Response to Re: The NHL 5 Worst Contracts Currently : Probably even without Hossa. If they didn't make those 3 stupid signings they would still have Byfuglien, Ladd, Verteeg, and Barker. I'll bet theyd be damn near first in the league and on their way to another cup final!! (Only to be disapointed by the B's of course)

Okay, they are not great contracts, but these guys do far more than you think. Hossa scored the OT winner last night, and was involved in so many plays. He's on the ice in every situation, because he is a great talent. He might not be great this year, but like Briere in Philly, his time will come, and you'll all be going "what a great player". He's big, strong, super talented, and works as hard as anyone on the ice.
Campbell is a very solid Dman. Over paid yes, but I'd take him on my team in a heart beat. As Bookboy007 discussed, who cares about the money. It's about performance, and the Hawks won the Cup with these guys, so they weren't passengers during the run.
As far as the contract itself, did they have any real option? If they didn't give them the $, then someone else would have, and maybe they don't win the Cup.
The end result is the Goal. And right now, I'd take those contracts on to Win this now, and who cares about 5 or 10 years from now. I'll bytch and complain then.
