This "rebuilding w/ homegrown talent" plan has been dragging for years, you have Tavares, it's time to add some real talent.

You don't understand the Islanders situation and what Crew is saying.

Sell out every game the Isles still lose money, even with their shoe string cap floor budget. Adding $12 million dollars in payroll, even if they make the playoffs, will cause them to lose even more money.

Not to mention, having to resign Kessel to a hefty raise, if he would even want to resign here.
