MacLean Looks Like A Genius Now

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,
Need tonight's winning lottery numbers? The winner in the seventh race at Pimlico? You might want to check with Doug MacLean. He obviously has a crystal ball. MacLean, after all, is the man who foretold -- or maybe started -- a sea change in the way NHL teams approach their salary structure. It was last August when the Columbus GM was widely ridiculed for giving Rick Nash, a burgeoning star but one with only two seasons under his belt, an unprecedented five-year, $27 million contract. Less than a year later MacLean has been vindicated as a true early adapter of the new CBA.
