So Poile is doing the HF Boards approach. Spend a ton of money a quantity as opposed to spending the same amount of money on quality. We are overpaying for 4th liners. Stalberg's deal was actually decent comparatively. To pay Cullen, Hendricks and Nystrom this sort of money is insane. Why not take that money and overpay for a true top 6 player. I don't think anyone here would've cried or been pissed if we had spent $5-6 million on Ribiero, Weiss, Grabovski, Roy or any one of the true top 6 talents out there. To spend this sort of money on fringe NHL players is absurd. Maybe he wants to get fired and honestly, if I'm an owner, especially Bret Wilson, I'd be making a phone call firing this guy. So replace guys with the same guys but at a higher rate. Yeah, that makes sense.
