But that would give Dean about 8 years of doing virtually nothing...
29 teams could vie for that... The leafs elected to overpay Phaneuf and Kessel and next year(No kaberle) they will have to overpay other bandaids as they fail further and further...
No team would ever be able to trade for Crosby though... That being said, if there is one team that could in Cash, Picks, Prospects and players it is the Los Angeles Kings... Never has a team given a GM as much of a blank cheque(check) over a 5 year period as LA has given Lombardi...
If ya ask me, he should have milked it more than he did... Why waste money on Handzus and Stoll and Poni? He could have saved a few million and either in April or over the summer launched a massive free agent purge with money and assets... But bandaid solutions brought us away from the savings we made on missing playoffs for numerous years.
THe purge we could have had without bandaids, will not happen... Lombardi, knows something we don`t though.... Blows my mind.
I would be delighted to be awaken by a firing of coaching and management... this would allow fans to rejoice in a change of waiting for prospects to grow into stars(todays only strategy).... But for fans to expect management to seek out stars...
To gain, you sometimes have to pay up for....Calculated gambling has never been a strategy of Lombardi... Again... maybe he knows something that we don`t
