Aside from inking the goaltender and signing a few of our own B-grade players, we never actually have gotten any of that accomplished in the past 13 years.
Regardless of the details and right or wrong, players/agents/media still view us as a franchise that won't spend money to build a winner - more concerned with the bottom line than winning a cup.
Like it or not, that perception limits our attractiveness as a franchise to potential FAs.
Would it kill us to go into the year near the midpoint? Yeah, maybe that means you overpay for a guy here or there, but look at it like an investment - you're marketing your franchise to the rest of the league.
