To be honest I don't care about the cap stuff, if it gets us a cup I'm down for anything. We have money to spend and if theres anything homer knows how to do it's letting 2nd round picks and cap space burn a hole in his pocket.
That's how I feel. The market is insane no matter which way you look at it. If they arent over paying Parise/Suter they are over paying guys like Carle and other second tier players. I'd much rather Suter at 7.5-8.5 than Carle at 5.5-6.5.
Getting one or both of these guys makes this team a Cup contender. Yeah, the money is insane, but youre going to overpay for anyone...and I really think both of these guys will be great players late into their careers, making them safer bets than most top free agents.
