of course we are capable.
im sure we could have had Carter for Ellis,Blum, Wilson, Kostitsyn, Radulovs rights and a couple of draft picks.
but that doesnt mean we SHOULD have done "whatever it took"
As I reacll you are in medical school so I'll share an axiom that is absolutely true... the best surgeons dont know when to operate, thats easy... the really good surgeons know when NOT to operate...
any GM can throw out a huge overpayment and make a trade, or break the bank on a UFA. The good ones are the ones who resist the temptation to do so, and get the right player at the right price.
