We are right on the edge of my comfort level right now, adding Vanek to that pushes it over the edge.
We've got zero idea where the cap will be in 3-4 years to worry to much about it. Expansion, Outdoor games, Canadian TV contract, general inflation. We could easily be looking at 90 Million caps.
The ones that are worth it will get paid, the ones that aren't will get traded. Fletcher has been setting us up for a run, and his drafting strategy targeting long term college prospects shows he know he is going to be able to keep all the kids. Thats life.
I'd take 3 or 4 years of legitimate Stanley Cup Contender status over worrying about whats going to happen with the kids in 4 years.
