Same with RoR. It's all about money. That, and I honestly think he is butt-hurt Landy was named captain of the team. I know his dad said he was happy, but you know RoR considered that a slap in the face.

I'm not going to say the ownership refuses to spend. But, don't I think ownership isn't going to pull the trigger on big spending unless it is going to put us at a championship level.

We just have to hope these young players pan out because clearly that's the path the Avs are sticking with.
