Not saying it's not true, just seems like a rather... Dumb business decision
Who said that? Nobody said anything of the sort.
When the majority of your top players are all on their first or second contracts, they are cheaper than if you signed them at market value. If you are a financially strapped team, you aren't going to be able to keep all of them at market price. That is why you develop new talent.
Stop insulting the Blues for doing the best the can with the finances they have. The Blues have 10 RFAs to resign within the next two years. Including Pietrangelo, Shattenkirk, Stewart, and Berglund. Something will have to give. Likely players like Sobotka and D'Agostini, certainly guys like Langenbrunner and Nichol. But that might not be enough.
