I posted what I did was because of the cap space left. Depth means something in this league, and if you sign Stamkos to that deal, you can't add anything! We're all so excited about adding Brad Richards and the fact that this team is starting to finally to turn the corner into possible cup contention, but we have to stay sane.
The right thing to do is to add the pieces that we don't have, namely a Top 6 left winger and a Puck moving defenseman.
Its not even worth arguing anyways. Stamkos is gonna resign with Tampa.
I do have to agree with you on cap flexibility issue with broadwayblue's proposal. No team can afford to leave only $90K in cap space to start the season, simply because you need a cushion to bring players up and down from Hartford due to injury/other circumstances.
