Yep, drafting them really protected them from having to offer up those contracts for good players.
Hire a good GM then!!!
DP kept two of the best D in the league around for peanuts compared to any of his counterparts!!! It can be done!!!! Because it has been done in Nashville!!!!!!!!! 6-7 years of service for two of the best D in the league before hitting payday!!!
Because DP did it properly he was able to determine which of the two was more valuable. Weber who can play PP, PK, 5 on 5, 30 min, score 20 goals from 80 ft and captain a team...compared to a guy that can do all of the above but only score 8 goals max...take your pick!!!
It can be done...it just take a good GM who sticks to his guns, provides a great atmosphere to play and doesn't get rattled by the fans!!!!!
