i disagree. Home run swings was the only play. It's NEVER a good option to pay sub optimal talent at high prices (Carle) long term. Yes, he would have helped this last season, where we likely would have not really done anything anyway. I would have easily gave him 6 m, for 1 year, but the 6 years were the issue for me.
Had we hit on parise and suter, we would have likely ha a much different season. But after these 2, the talent dropoff for UFAs was significant, and nobody worth committing to long term.
In one year increments, screw it...get whoever helps, it's not my money.
