Talk about the grass being greener at your neighbours house.
If we're going to overpay for someone I'd rather overpay for the player who addresses a need then overpay someone who doesn't.

I blame the fan's impatience to short attention span's and the internet for instant gratification!

If Bergevin is unconviced that we are a good team then we should've kept the cap space free and waited for a better opportunity. If half way through next season he realizes we actually are a good team we won't have the space to acquire players to address our needs and so we've wasted a couple of years.

They are good players no doubt, the point I was making was that Washington had a excellent window to go for it but decided to wait for them to develop in order to fill the needs. Now that they have developed they don't have as good a window anymore.
