What is unfortunate is people unwilling to look beyond next season. Just spending up to the cap won't get us anywhere, just ask the New York Rangers. Carefully managing the cap will. We will be up against the cap in just one years time, big UFA signings or not. Teams in the past had the luxury of the cap going up by millions every season. Now, who knows? The economy is a mess, ironically because of people unwilling to look beyond the next paycheck.

I understand what you're saying but I just hate the idea that we must go for it right now, put ourselves up against the cap for a big shot at the cup. I'd rather be patient and competitive longer than short sighted and going for the big shot. It took Yzerman twelve years to win the cup. He then won it three times in five years. Slow and steady wins the race. Screw instant gratification!
