We don't have that much money to move around. According to NHLNUMBERS we are 15 million under the cap without Kreps, Campbell, Olesz, Matthias, Frolik, Belak and Bouw. Hardly a nice bank roll to play around with.
Someone had a quote on detroit that said that all their stars on are defense that they want to pay them a lot of money, some 7 a year some 5 a year. Defense is working in the new NHL and JM is getting on top of that. Now with DeBoer adding aggressiveness and physical presences we should be a force.
