Not blowing a tonne of assets on high profile players. Especially when we're seriously considering moving the same piece we're looking at for pennies on the dollar.

We're likely seeing the last of Ales Hemsky and Sam Gagner in Oiler silks and "sources say" they aren't worth their weight in ****.

Ask yourself how much each of those four players are going to command as a potential return. Is that a reasonable management of assets?

Fix the defense before you fix anything else on this team.

I would not be upset if drove a dumptruck full of money to Stastny's house on July 1st.

But giving him that kind of money may come back to bite us when we're re-upping players down the road.

$6M is a good number. $7.5M is pushing it.
