I almost feel like I missed something -- but I don't think I did, because I know Darcy would never "confirm" such things.

The part I heard, after a question from Schopp, Darcy was talking in general about some of the pitfalls of getting into the expensive free agent market. All he said was that you have to be careful that jealousy doesn't creep into your room.
Talking about paying top dollar for UFAs after Ville Leino was broght up:

That's pretty much verbatim.
