I've been a Bruins fan for 40 years. The Bruins do right by their players now, but it wasn't always that way.
Been a fan since ~1994 when I was living in Philly in the Legion of Doom era. It's not an issue of "fiscal largesse" as much as it is one of player desire / wishes. It is often difficult to get players to want to play in Nashville, Phoenix, Atlanta, Raleigh, etc. regardless of how much you pay them. Yes, there are exceptions; the Canes did well this offseason and Dallas snagged Jagr, but the point is pretty undeniable.
