Lulu, it helps to actually have the cash in hand to spend to the cap which we do not. And spending to the cap doesn't always equal success. NYR anyone? You also have to have good management that drafts well and brings in FA pieces when needed. Can you say Detroit?

I don't blame Weber for wanting to go to a team that has a legitimate shot at a Cup. That's what every Canadian boy who plays hockey dreams of. I blame him for making the process more difficult than it needed to be.

I blame Poile for not reading the situation correctly and assuming it would be a piece of cake to sign him for a longer term deal. He should have realized a month ago that things were not progressing and offered a one year at 6.5-7 and gone from there.

I blame the owners for being disengenious about what they were willing to spend.

I am angry that this franchise has squandered all the good that came from getting to the second round. I'm tired of being the little franchise that can't.
