Amonte's a desert dog.: There were lots of signings today in the NHL, but Amonte's the biggest one. Was anyone expecting him to end up in Phoenix? Probably not. And at $24 mil/4 yr, he's getting no more than he deserves (arguably...hint hint).

Personally, I don't think Amonte is an elite player, and $6 mil/year is pushing it, but he could have gone to the Rangers or Isles and made $8 mil. So maybe there's sanity after all.

notice amonte's points have suffered from year to year; the trend continued, despite a better team playing with him this year (and a standout center in zhamnov).

As long as the ChiHawks hold on to Zhamnov (I have an autographed puck signed by Alexei) and Eric Daze, they won't be all the worse for wear having dropped Amonte. In retrospect, I'm glad the Leafs didn't sign him.
