Again, we have no evidence whatsoever that ownership forced management to stick to the cap floor. The only things that have been reported were that ownership said that if this team were to spend to the cap again, they'd better have a winner.

Unfortunately it's hard to tell anything one way or the other since the hockey side of the Pepsi Center operates like a black box. Nothing gets in, nothing gets out.

If there's truly a spending restriction on Sherman, it's more than likely coming from Lacroix, not KSE.

I don't necessarily have a problem with the restrictions on spending so long as we don't lose marquee young players for nothing as a result. At least they've shown a willingness to spend above the cap this offseason.
