If that's his sincere belief, then the game has passed him by. The fact of the matter is, the best teams under the cap system are going to be (1) wealthy teams that get the cream of the crop veterans as UFA's and (2) budget teams that are able to mix young, internally developed talent with some key veterans. Our team cannot afford option #1. We are not the Philadelphia Flyers. If Hitch can't figure a way to work with young talent, he's not the right guy for this team.
