If you spend it NOW, they're won't be a LATER.
Those other owners down south will jump all over a team like the Oil that have cried "poor" under this current agreement. Honestly, from someone who's been there... on the inside... they have to be very careful this season. Calgary and Ottawa too. Any extra spending could cost us. You just have to bite the bullet this season and keep your fingers crossed. It would take waaaaaay more than an extra 5 million to make us a playoff threat anyway.
