Our payroll is at $30.8 million.

Ticket price increases, Heritage game windfall, CDN$ increase, High home attendance and around 15,000 season ticket holders.

That payroll should be at least 5 million dollars higher.

This does not please me :mad:

If the player budget was going to DECREASE, ticket prices should not have gone up.
what's wrong with the owners turning a 4 or 5 mil profit this year? I'd rather see the team make some money this year, gives them flexibility heading into a lockout where they still have some overhead, with no revenue, PLUS the ability to pay off debt/deficits from previous years.

Besides which, who can you get for 4-5 mil that would help you out? And do they help you out enough to make it worth it? Is this team suddenly going to become a Cup contender?

Comrie you could sign for one, of course, we can reasonably guess EDM has the money to sign him, they probably just don't want to create a poor salary structure.
