Its kind of a damned if we do and damned if we don't.
Yes, there's an internal cap because we're not a big draw so we don't spend to the cap. But if we don't keep stars like Getzlaf and Perry we definitely won't draw fans. Its an ongoing argument on the board, you gotta spend to get fans but you gotta have fans to spend.
