With the CBA mayhem on the horizon... why would you look to increase your player payroll beyond the 30 million this year?
I'd be absolutely STUNNED if the Oilers didn't hold on tight (budget wise) until AFTER a new agreement is in place. It would be very difficult to claim "we're poor" to the other owners if you go too crazy with your player budget this year.
If you suspected that you were going to lose your job next September, would you ring up your VISA bill even higher?? Uh-no. You'd look to keep your head above water and maybe even start cutting some costs. If things work out well, THEN it's time to re-evaluate where you are financially. Make sense?
