Again, you're being unrealistic about competitive pressure. Everyone understands that drafting a great player is better than signing one as a UFA. That doesn't change the reality that most teams won't draft one, and no GM has enough job security to just sit around and hope that one comes down the pipe 10 years from now.

I do believe that Wideman/Carle/Gilbert is a much better top 3 D then Suter/Gilbert and who??? Prousser???
Isn't Prousser on their bottom pairing?

Why should Leopold spend his money on players that don't make financial and team sense...just because his fans are red in the face???
Because Minnesota's sellout streak is history after years of mediocrity. They are facing market forces and don't have an eternal mandate to screw around without consequences like the Leafs.

BOS...same thing!
Yeah, remember when they "drafted" Chara and Savard to get out of the doldrums?
