Don't get me wrong I'm not one of those naive fans who just thinks the owners should spend tons of money. I understand how the business works but until ownership commits more money than they are comfortable with and supplement our great young D and great role playing forwards we have this team will never be more than "hardworking" and "overachievers". Don't get me wrong that type of team is fun to watch but unless we actually make the playoffs (which will be tough this year) and get REALLY hot at the right time this team will never be a true threat. Just look at the past few years when teams have made it far into the playoffs. All the teams have been the most talented in the league for the most part. ( with the exception of the 05-06 oilers)


Mabye I am way off base here and without a doubt it is easy to say spend more millions when it isnt your money you are spending. I obviously appreciate everything the owners have done. IMO we will never be able to take the next step until owners open up their pocketbook a little. Of course we need to hit 14K paid to really have any right to ask them to spend more next year I guess. The rollercoaster never ends....
