Isles have to watch expenses but so do NJD, TAM, BUF, BOS, Ducks etc. BTW the team with severe financial problem is BUF.
I'm not arguing that the Devils don't have to watch their spending but the patient,competent Lou L. is heads above the impatient,gambling MM.
With little wiggle room in the nyi budget and their best skilled prospects still a few yrs away,the nyi need some savvy trading from their gm to go from playoff contender to serious cup contender... and I have very little faith in MM's ability to get this team to the next level.
