Sorry, I don't buy it as if it were true, not many of your posts would remain "without attacks" as it seems to be your favourite strategy of debate, seeing your interaction in this thread. No respect for others' opinion because they differ from yours.

That was actually one of the reason some were saying the deal was a good one, because it would permit Bergevin to get a player around the deadline (he didn't), and then it was because he was going to sign some UFA (he did except not the guy anybody here wanted) but we still have the room.
So what's the point in saving some cash if you don't use it?

Also, we were/are in a transitional period, saving some cash last season or this year, even with the cap coming down, wasn't the time to do it. You want to save cash when you're ready to compete, that way you can go after some bigger names that will require over payments. That's in 2-5 years, not 1 1/2.
We are hoping to be competitive when PK, MAxPAc, Price, Eller, Emelin, Diaz, Gally, Galla, Tinordi, Beaulieu (most if not all of them) are holding key positions on our team, those are the guys who's salary we can control, but we will need to sign free agents as well and those guys are the ones that get overpaid. So any little bit of cash saved from the controllable gang in the following 2-4 years is what is a lot more beneficial than now as it should be the time where we overpay for guys.
Hindsight is a beautiful thing, isn't it?

Funny that you reply to this message but not to that one. The kitchen getting too hot?
