We're not doing it, so the panthers' business model does not place on-ice performance as a critical measure of success. Ultimately, the owners (the ones with real control, not Viner) don't give a crap about how well the team does.
I don't agree with this, the owners are very much invested in our team. I think it was the year that McCabe was captain we were spending right up to the cap. They were even willing to shell out 3 mill for Kopecky a career 3/4th liner and gave Jovo the money. When we have players that are worth spending money on, they will spend it.
