It wasn't all about money.

Even if Holland scored both Parise and Suter, they would have still sucked yesterday. The team wasn't ready.
I mean didn't we offer Suter 90M over 13 years? That was his top offer until Minny upped there offer to 98M over 13 years which he signed. We were right there with everyone spending wise it's just you have to be a smart spender in a Salary Cap world otherwise you get burned eventually. (Chicago of the past, Boston, and Minny next season)
