Agreed. That is where they screwed up. They can't talk about how they are going to spend more to compete and will do whatever it takes to keep their stars and then go and play hardball. If they weren't interested in handing him such a deal then they needed to embrace that they are a small market team and traded him and Suter for NHL ready pieces. This was the situation they needed to avoid.
