1/3 of the teams in the NHL either don't have the cap room and would need to shuffle half the roster or have other, higher priority needs.
So it will come down to the other 10 teams.
Those hockey people are the ones that work for NHL teams. If you are in the minority that thinks the whole roster sucks and
we won't make the playoffs
for 3 more years then I'm not going to waste time arguing with you.
The problem is that this is your measure of success. My measure is different, and based on the hole that the previous regime dug it's going to be a lot more than 3 years before they are anywhere close to being legitimately successful.
Players like Parise know this too, that's why there is no amount of money that could lure him over to this team in it's current condition. As Teufelsdreck said, it'll take a gun to make it happen.
I am not arguing with you here, just trying to stop you from fooling yourself.
