Exactly. When I said "I was afraid of this" in the OP that's essentially what I meant.(not being snarky, just re-affirming it)... Saving money and having a gameplan going forward is great, but if I'm drooled over by the entire league (Weber), a fantastic goalie in my prime, or an extremely solid defenseman (Suter), it's a business and why would I want to hang around a team that moved forward from their biggest season by regressing about as much as possible?

It just doesn't feel good right now. That's all I can say.
