Further, I gladly would've taken a Jagr at $7.5MM per season over Rissmiller + Redden and signed a guy like Commodore for Naslund's $4MM, to be honest, but again, I wouldn't be able to watch Jagr for 2-3 more seasons (and who knows if he would've taken that), so it probably was the right move at the time. I was also fine taking a step back - just wasn't sure this was the group that I'd take a step back with.
I can't condone the spending habits from last summer. But I agreed with the direction.
