That $27 million only includes Drury, Gomez, Lundqvist, Rozsival, and Redden. That's almost half a teams salary cap invested in 5 players, only half of which are arguable superstars in the league.
I love the team, don't get me wrong, but with the way the league works now, we might not be too far away from another Dark era.
admittedly, if the team doesn't make a real run for the cup then the $27m is a waste. on the other hand if they do then it will have worked out.
