Signing players to bargain deals that are apart of your core and who presumably want to be in Toronto IS the goal. No more obfuscation.
What I meant was that overpaying for a guy who do the business at both ends of the ice for 25+ minutes per game is not the end of the world. It is overpaying for a grinder or a *cough cough* one way snipper is what hurt a franchise imo.
