Stick with your integrity all you want, this franchise isnt winning any time soon by spending $5-6 mil on 30 goal scorer UFAs with zero upside.
Chicago have Toews and Kane for 5+ years, WSH have Ovie and Backstrom for 10+ years, PIT have Crosby and Malkin for 5+, EDM will have Hall, Eberle, 2012 1st for X years....... Habs have Gomez, Camm, Gionta for 4+ years for virtually the same cap hit.
Do you not see a problem here????
If you look at some of our players right now I haven't been this happy about our youth in like 20 years. Price, Subban, Eller, Pacioretty, Weber, Desharnais and others. We have done very well for sure they are no Ovechkin or Toews but we are on the right track and our scouting is doing a good job, I wouldn't wanna see this team miss the playoffs for a couple of years for a hope of us getting that elite talent, with our luck we would draft the bust!
