I know a team needs depth to win a Stanley Cup but this team is lacking superstar power and you can't win a cup paying a bunch of cookie cutter guys 4 million a year.
They could've easily signed one of those guys and then moved Ballard or Booth to make the cap work. None of them wanted to come here. It's like some of you think that every FA wants to come to Vancouver so badly that all it takes is for us to make them an offer.
