I think something that people aren't taking into account here, and it may have been covered but I have to leave for class soon so I skipped over a handful of posts, but being able to spend more money and having the right pieces on which to spend that money are mutually exclusive issues. I'm not saying we are in a position to spend more money, but even if we are we can't simply go around throwing contracts are people so that fans can say "hey! they're spending more money!". That does us no good, and ultimately we end up like the Leafs or the Flames or any other team that can, and often does, spend tons of money only to perpetually miss the play offs all together. Chastise Poile all you want, but this isn't NHL11 and you can't simply get whatever player you decide you want so long as you're under the cap. I don't care if we sold out every night since the inaugural season, that would be an absolutely terrible way to run a team.
