Wow this is an awkward read... I can't believe these guys get paid to do what they do...

The Sun's Hockey "Experts", Tim Baines, Don Brennan, Bruce Garrioch and Chris Stevenson, debate Mike Fisher's salary. Home town bonus or money well spent?

Funniest line - Stevenson to Garrioch: "ya gotta step away from the Peterborough Kool-Aid."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I read that.

I hear "news" of more journalistic value over lunch every day.

...the weasel in the press box who forgot his impartiality when he got
carried away one night and blurted “Go Fish!” At first I thought he
wanted to play cards before I realized he was waving his pom-poms. And
no, it wasn’t Bruce.

:lol!:

Bruce waves cotton candy, not pom-poms.

I didn't know Chris Stevenson and Tim Baines were such tits. Who would have thought that, amongst this enlightened quartet, only Bruce Garrioch would know what he's talking about?

"Chris Stevenson: If you’re going strictly by the numbers, no, a 20-goal scorer isn’t worth $6 million. But Fisher’s case is more complicated than that. He brings more to the party than numbers. Is he overpaid? I’d say so. Could the Senators afford to let him go? Probably not.

Bruce Garrioch: Let’s get past the first myth: Mike Fisher’s salary for this year is $6 million, yes. But his cap hit is $4.2 million. At $4.2 million, if he scores 20, in today’s NHL he will be right about where he should be.

Tim Baines: Six million dollars is still $6 million. And, at the end of the day, Mike Fisher’s stats don’t justify being paid that much.

Garrioch: Tim, get it straight. The actual figure doesn’t mean anything anymore. Everything is about the cap hit. Do we call Dany Heatley the $10-million man? No, we don’t.

[...]

Garrioch: My point is the $6 million (Fisher) is making is like an albatross when it shouldn’t be because that’s not his cap hit. Let’s move on. My point is lost with this group!"

LOL.

If you can't beat them, join them?

Personally, I thought they were just having a little fun at Burce's expense. Maybe they were trying to induce a heart attack.

To induce a heart attack they should have had this little soiree on the fourth floor and locked out the elevator.

All I know is that whenever he waves, his old granny-like milk bags wobble under his girlish biceps.
