Do people on this board not use their brains anymore?

Yeah as a matter of fact they do, which is why they are calling you on your BS.

You don't go with futures when you have 2 franchise players in their prime and recently went to the Stanley Cup Finals. Your window is now with the Sedins. You can't assume you will have a great team in 10 years that even has a window to win. For all you know you could be bottom feeders in 10 years.

The salary cap difference is really not all that great either. Certainly not enough to take a clear downgrade in goal, as you state.
