Where the hell are you getting this idea that this is possible? Where is this money coming from? When you have good players, they will get paid. It is critical to have young, cheap guys to replace some of these guys bc we can't afford them all forever.

Edit: Just an addition, I'm not doom and gloom by any means. I agree with the general sentiment. But at the moment we have a HORRENDOUS farm system. We can't allow that to be the case for much longer.

We'll get money because other players will be leaving? I'm pretty positive we can have all of those players locked up. Players like Kimmo and Hartnell (and Leino at the end of this year) would clearly sign here at a discount.

Only concerns money wise is Giroux, JVR, and Coburn because none of them have reached their potential yet. All of them love it here and will probably also take discounts.
