They're just hanging on here in Edmonton and other cities... look at how the CBA has slowly eaten away at this team over the past 5 years! Guerin, Weight, Cujo... all gone because we can not keep up with the big boys.

Look... you're screwed either way.
If you stop going, you're putting the team's future at risk... if they start spending this year, they're putting the team's future at risk. We all must hope for some sense of sanity during the next 12 months. The rebuilding can not happen until after the next CBA. It just can't.

It's not about spending! It's about maintaining the practice of the last few years and increasing the budget small amounts, OR, not raise ticket prices and keep it the same.

This team would go forward and progress as a team while still remaining responsible.
