Well that is the idealized model that fans on this board like. But owners,
managers, coaches, players, and a lot of fans like to compete in the play-offs.
Even if they are not one of the top contenders. Therefore the question of buying
For the habs to give up much in the way of picks, or prospects, you hope
they get someone that will help in the future, as well as now. But not every
rental player costs huge. And sometimes plugging a specific hole, say face-off
specialist, can make a difference.
So you look at the cost, and decide whether it's worthwhile. And to help
them decide: I personally contract to drink more beer if the habs win a series.
