the answer is no

at somepoint if holland is unsuccessful with his 2 or 3 top chocies and cant make a trade for a simmilar impact player then it would be best to save the big money, sign some really cheap depth guys to short term deals and let the kids get a ton of ice time to develop
If that happens, I agree. Next year's free agency is too good and deep to throw stupid cash around this year. Let's face it, there are some great players available this year, but after them the dropoff is huge. I don't want to see us get marginally better this season at the cost of long term success. I know many here will be up in arms if that happens though..
