And if you didn't notice, teams were relatively quiet this offseason, so I'm not surprised that many of those players aren't signed yet. No one knows what the cap will do with the new CBA.
we did it before and it did not work out well. Knuble has lost his wheels even more than Guerin had his last year.

Iginla or Clowe are completely different situations than Knuble. Iginla is just a much different player and is much better than Knuble. And Clowe is 30. Not quite ready for the wheels to fall off. Meanwhile, Knuble has already played a season without wheels.

You can't have it both ways.
This. So much this.
