You dont need to worry about money. Just because he pulled the hat from DUMBASSbrowsky of the Tigers does not mean he's losing money and I highly doubt his empire is in question at this point. The god damn guy owns a casino (ok his wife does, whatever), a well known pizza chain, 2 pro teams. I dont think you need to worry about his money.
You will see Detroit spend to limit for as long as our core is around, which is 10+ more years.
This might not be our year, 29 other teams say this at seasons end ya know. We're spoiled here in Detroit and personally, id rather see kids given a shot this year and rebound for next season then to see him take on contracts that are GOD AWFUL to only throw us into a tight spot next year as well. Also, who knows how this team might pan out. We might look back here in June and laugh. Who knows.
Detroit is the top NHL franchise for a reason. They stick to their plans and never otherwise. Why change up a winning formula to fix a problem in December that might not be there in March.
