Offer Crosby the max. ? They'll match it. Overpay for a player like Bergeron, they'll either match it or you'll suffer for overpaying out of spite. If you take the offensive after another team's financial situation, it goes beyond the GM's job, it gets into whether an owner wants to make enemies or not. There may be circumstances, like the Bryan Allen example, but I don't believe this will be much of an issue. I'm sure Strachan will leak a story about the Leafs or Rangers making a move, but it'll be from his own imagination.
