-Berra was apparently a big deal -> one of the two best goaltenders not in the NHL (along with Ramo) according to scouts

-List was apparently a problem again, even though it was longer

-Want to stockpile assets. Don't want to be in the same position of missing the playoffs repeatedly.

-Not a fan of using the 'rebuild' word

-Uncertainty over goaltender next season -> Kipper's contract with only 1.5M in actual salary

-Talks about cap room. How it's an asset going into next season when the cap goes down.
The last point kinda scares me, I could See him trading one of the firsts for Brad Richards in the off-season.
