keeping the puck out for as long as possible is great. but if you have no one to bury the game winner... we re gonna feel like this again.
a lot easier to spend on better quality scoring/forward depth when you aren't paying 7.4M$ for a third liner!
i think the problem with our roster (as many have been pointing out since the '09 re-tool) is that we have way too much money invested in players unable to play up to the cap hit we've allocated to them.
Hamrlik, Spacek, Gomez are all CLEARLY overpaid by pretty large margins.
We can fix the Hamrlik situation in the offseason, which will help, but if the team is going to try to get better by next opening day, we'll need to move one or both of Gomez/Spacek and then find a way to re-invest that cap space in players that can fill some of our needs.
