Obvious by what measure, tho? I'm not disagreeing with your conclusion as it seemed that way to me as well, but I also saw potential reasons for worry that I considered unimportant. Kind of like with Wennberg. (Specifically, I was worried about his extremely low assists count.) That and, frankly, his agent was playing hardball and trying to get much, much more than he was worth. This is another "the agent decided to unreasonably play hardball" situation. I'm pretty sure long term was the intent, but Overhardt was insisting on more than he was worth to go along with that term. There's "what you want" and "what you can get". Concur, but he subsequently has been, and it's still for a good deal. I don't know if his agent was acting up like Overhardt did with Joey or if Kekalainen legit was trying to preserve the "second contract" ideal or whatever the heck came up there. In Wennberg's case, I saw those worries, but didn't consider them to be that much of an issue because even outside of the PP he was doing well at even strength. He's got me extraordinarily frustrated because he's not producing at ES anymore either. David Savard. Markus Nutivaara. Brandon Saad.
