That's how stupid and desillusional he is. I wish we had a critic management capable of bringing improvements to the weaknesses of our team. But I'm not holding my breath. I'm waiting for some more excuses, once again.

I expect we'll be wasting all of our cap space on the same group of players as last season, even if they're aging, getting slower and weaker for the most part on defense, and even if we are depending on two headcases for our scoring.

Don't ask yourselves why Boston did win the Cup. Thomas sure helped, but when you have Peverley, Seguin and Ryder for secondary scoring, and Krejci, Bergeron, Recchi, Horton, Lucic and Marchand on your top-6, you're on a whole other level than a team having guys like Pouliot, Kostitsyn and Gomez as primary scorers.
I'm more inclined to believe that the OWNER doesn't want to spend that much. Not the GM.
