Yeah but, the Flames have alot less depth than Edmonton now. I'm not saying the Flames are wrong here. Just different philosophies. The Flames chose to throw a bunch of money at Turek and Iginla. The now have, IMO, one of the better lines in the NHL with Conroy-Iginla-McCammond. They don't have awhole lot more.

Edmonton could have gave all that money to Weight, just like Ottawa could have given all that money to Yashin. The Oilers decided that the money would be better spent elsewhere. That doesn't make Lowe a bad GM.
