It's hard to be competitive when you are spending very close to the cap floor plus they had some overpriced veterans and buyouts to clear up on top of it. Look what happened to us when we had $20 million on injury reserve for most of the season.
If Edmonton went out and got $12 - $15 million worth of veteran d-men in the free agency market they would probably be a playoff bubble team.
