But we should have $12-15 under the cap, more if the cap increases, which it should.
By the summer of 2012, our rookies and sophomores will matures, and some more prospects will make the Rangers.
Only then will we know who else we need to add.
And by then, we should be a contender, so overpaying a UFA will actually make sense.
2012's free agent pool is not all enticing (especially outside of d-men. the best forwards are penner and hemsky
). the right move is to act sooner rather than later, without making dumb moves. richards is an elite talent. if he's available you do what you have to make that happen.
and it's never a good idea to overpay any UFA, regardless. and paying a lot for one player doesn't necessarily mean overpaying. drury/gomez at 7+ = overpaid. richards/gaborik at 7+ = proper value
