you know which GMs are known for fighting for every million and ensuring their roster is maxed out with talent? lombardi and holland and chiarelli. do you know what those guys have that we don't? a friggen cup!!
Exactly. If you overpay a player by 500k, you might not think it's a big deal but if you do that with 3-4 players, next thing you know, you used up 2 mill of capspace more than you had to and that money could be used for another 3rd liner.
