The Pens were willing to sign Crosby to a monster, uninsurable contract because he is the cornerstone of their franchise. If our owners are serious about spending with the big dogs in this league, then they'll do the same thing.
The either HAVE to match or at least tell the Flyers brass that they intend to and force them to trade a couple of valuable pieces back for some of those 4 firsts.
Walking away with 4 late first round picks is just lame and stupid.
