Obviously they didn't sign Kasparaitis they merely retained his contract, but if their statement is supposed to be applied to contracts they don't buy out, why are they keeping Jagr? Is he helping the rebuilding? Great with the kids, is he?

How about Nylander? They signed him after the rebuilding had started. Was he signed only to help the rebuilding?

This was indeed a mistake and while I hope you're right about DK's salary not being a hindrance, time will tell. What can be definitively stated now is this: in overpaying an average player, the team has limited its cap flexibility. Whether or not it ever bites them on the ass, that's a mistake in a hard-cap league. It's a shortsighted strategy in a league that calls for vision.
