They didn't get rich by signing lots of checks.
So do they not spend and never make the playoffs and just be a perennial also-ran?
If the fans see them trying and making the playoffs, the revenue will come back to them in the form of sold out playoff dates and TV revenue. Penny pinchers occasionally make it(anahiem/minnesota) but it really isn't the norm.
