The $4.2mil is an abitrary number. Upgrading the team is the goal - not upgrading the team at or less than what David Booth makes.

The assumption was a similar level player to Booth. A PWF of his calibre, not legit 1st liners. A player with a similar skill-set, would he make 4m or less?

So let me ask you this, upgrading the team is the goal, so why isn't Bobby Ryan here? Or similar type player? We know the cost of this player would be higher than Booth, but that shouldn't matter right? Why hasn't Gillis paid it yet?
