An don't say well if they don't do it that they can't compete! Ryan Suter is a great D but far from worth 10M...Minnesota would have been better off with 2 $5M D than 1 $10M D...that is their own fault!!! Even if you think that they still need to do that to compete, you don't financial bankrupt your team because you have to win. Its a gamble...you either try to win and pay the price or you take a different approach maybe win and save yourself financially!!!!!!
For you can not see the forest for the trees...

Oh hey that's fine, go ahead and sign your star player to a lifetime contract, I will just hope mine stays with me for his entire career with these 2/3 year deals...

The NHL is tied to each individual club. One owners actions impact everybody else.
