To get the chicken, you need the egg, but to get the egg, you need the chicken. We have neither, and apparently all of Tavares' BFFs are 21 or under.

How does one make that work?
You're right, Perry is a definite pipe dream. Moulson is 21+ ya know.

As for how to make it work, your guess is as good as mine. The only thing I can think of is overpaying for that initial player to get the ball rolling. In the meantime, winning is the best selling point so the boys have to get it done on the ice. If JT were to put up an Art Ross/Hart trophy type of season and the team makes a legit run at the playoffs... It would definitely be a much easier sell. That's pretty much what I'm hoping for.
