They signed a big name on the market, Demitra. One of the BETTER names on the market, no less. And they got a third round pick for temporarily filling cap space.

Right now we have at LEAST $15.1 million of free cap space next season, depending on revenues:

Roenick: 4.94
Bure: 1.5
Norstrom: 2.66
Miller: 2.66
Conroy: 2.34
Robitaille: 1

I don't like the signing much either... but hey, if he serves his role with the team, and AM doesn't keep plugging him in there when the kids have shown they deserve a shot, I'm all for it.
Miller and Conroy are both signed beyond this season.
