Not positive on the bolded--JFB can chime in, though--but I don't understand why they wouldn't be able to use it as they see fit. It's their asset, if they choose to spend it on another asset they believe will enhance their team, they should be permitted to do so.

Also, I think their ownership/management want to give Winnipeg a playoff team, and if they're flirting with a playoff spot, they'll make moves in an attempt to make the top-8. Regehr makes some sense for them given their putrid PK.
