Problem is availability. There are no first liners available. Of course when one does come available, we gotta jump all over it. Even if was have to overpay. This is where Poile will fail though. He refuses to overpay for a 1st liner, but has no issue overpaying for a 4th liner.
I was referring more to Free Agency more than anything. Problem with Goose's contract is his years PLUS the amount. It's crazy. Getting rid of his contract allows us to spend money where we actually need it.

Also, anyone remember Gaustad when tootoo flattened Miller last year? Surprised we traded for him.

You do realize Gaustad is the 4th overall paid player and under contract till 15-16 with 3.25 hit every year right?
