They've been, at worst, a middle of the road salary team post-lockout.

And there was a season or two that they spent right up to the cap.

Regier hasn't been able to stash overpaid guys in the AHL and the only contract they have bought out is TK, but I don't believe the budget was as big an issue as the bad contracts Regier gave out.
