I'm stressed out as a fan, I can't imagine how MB is at this point.
What are you talking about? First, 5 million for a top pairing blueliner is pretty standard.

Secondly, to get free agents you have to overpay and they usually aren't worth anywhere near the cash. Not only that but you aren't going to find any FAs who are 23, a top pairing defenseman and you can build your team around.

C'mon man...
