And that team lost the President's trophy on the last day of the season and was six wins away from winning the Stanley Cup.
It is also something of a new reality IF (and that is a big if) the cap was 60 million as proposed. You can't expect to have gaborik, nash, richards, lundqvist, etc. all on the roster with such a low cap. Just because people are willing to deal with that doesn't make them ignorant, or happy about it. But if that is the new landscape then it is what it is and you deal with it.
btw, 1k posts, looks like this won't be the last lockout thread, hopefully the next one will be.
