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?
No, the assumption was never to acquire a PW of his calibre at $4mil or less. That's all irrelevant.

Let me ask you this, why did Gillis go out and sign Garrison for more money than Ballard makes, which will ultimately push Ballard down the roster and likely off it? Because he had an opportunity to upgrade his defense. If the opportunity arises to improve the forward corps, he'll do it. And that arbitrary $4.2mil is completely irrelevant and won't enter into the equation.

Not sure what makes you think a top 6 forward that comes in needs to make Booth money or less...
