he traded a draft pick for nikolishin..

by that logic, san jose bought scott parker

he does benefit from a large budget, of course, but he doesn't buy players like the rangers do... the trades that pierre has made to acquire big name players at the deadline, he uses nothing but the great crop of youth you eluded to through the scouting staff... that isn't buying players..

kariya and selanne were the first two major names over a million lacroix has ever bought via UFA, and they came to him, he didn't throw money around...

there's a huge difference from all of this to buying players.. that isn't the right statement
