I would like to know how you make that statement with a straight face. Lombardi has demonstrated his unwillingness to spend money on a big contract just to spend it. The player has to be the right fit and want to come here.

Exhibit #1: Offer made to Marion Hossa
Exhibit #2: Trade made for Ryan Smyth
Exhibit #3: Contract signed by Rob Scuderi (slightly overpaid, but recognized as "the missing piece")
