And also yea thats 12 million we can use to sign a Crosby or Ovechkin but wait....they were DRAFTED!!! They play so well for their money because they are YOUNG and have proven themselves as UP AND COMING STARS. This is not baseball, you cannot buy a championship in the free agency. The best teams find gems in teh draft and sign role players in free agency. It doesn't matter ho much cap space we have because good teams will retain their good players and the players that DO reach free agency will either have padded stats from playing on bad teams or will be role players who are too old to contibute or just dont have an impact. Oh and lets not mention that all these players are treated as if they are on ebay with the highest bidder "winning" these players.

Fact is, look at our best player in Lundqvist, he was DRAFTED!!! This team needs to invest all of its money and resources in scouting so we can great rookies who will evolve into great players. Ask Detroit how its worked for em.

In short, yea 12-18 million of cap space would be fantastic but for what, to sign Marleau and Kovy to inflated deals to dissapoint us? And I've said it before and I'll say it again, if we sign Kovy, he's going to FLOP!!!!
