And to add, something I think you originally taught me, is that sometimes if I know a guy will be good I sign him the day I draft him, that way he will only have 2 years until next contract and then after that I will try sign him to like a 10 year contract @ ~$2.5 mil/year.

For instance I still have my #1 goalie entering his prime for another 5 years at I think it's $2.6 mil/year and I have Carey Price still at $4 mil/year so once Price comes off the books I can afford to pay him the starter salary. Now I've got my 3rd line C (little steep of a price) and my future #1/#2 RW locked up for cheap too.
