I'm not pointing fingers or blaming here, because we tried to spend money on Suter and there hasn't been anyone else worth spending money on. But it still irks me how they repeatedly used absolutes like that. Don't say it if it's not true.
In fairness, i believe they were saying that when they thought they would sign suter and weber and had a shot at parise,... when that fell through, and with the new CBA looming, it didnt make sense to throw ridiculous money at anyone. Its also quite possible that having to pay Webers insane signing bonus kept us from delivering on that promise this year as well...
