Look at McCabe at 6 million....Arnott and others will surely get the same or more.
For example, what are we going to have to pay Markov a year from now if we gave a defenseman the caliber of McCabe 6 million?
I understand what you are saying, but you hate to cheer for a team that passes
on improving the team now, for the sake of next year.I would hope with our solid
group of prospects in the system, the rebuilding process is over, and we are ready
to become a top team by whatever means nessesary
