GMs are spending faster than US Congress

They better stop their whining about players costing too much when they are the ones not controlling themselves.

a day like today illustrates perfectly why I keep insisting that 'cap space' is overrated

Regarding Horton not playing more than 67 games since 07-08: meant to say he's only done it once.

I know, it will become a very good signing if we move one of Gionta, Desharnais or Plekanec. Hopefully won't have to resort to trading Plekanec but maybe it would be the best solution for long term since he's the one worth something and in the long run, you need a player like Plekanec when you're a contender, but by the time we will be one, he's probably gonna be on the downhill. Just like the Flames waited too long before trading Iginla.

Why do you say that? They still need to respect it. If a team spends like that, he will need to make some space if they don't have it. Cap space would be overrated if you'd be able to not respect it....

If Lou is spending that much money on Elias and Clowe, i wonder how mauch he had offered Briere. Maybe he was telling the truth about having better offers on the table than the Canadiens...

That Uncle Lou...he's a character!

They will because a lot of the big spenders are at or near the cap. After the first 75-100 mil in cap hits goes, things get tight and you can get pretty good deals. I'm surprised the early guys are getting so much as there is not a lot of cap space/money available this yaer with the cap dropping. Players waiting may end up having to take a lot less than they want.

Komisarek at 700k, I would have been all over that.

Well great. He shouldn't have too much trouble to take Gionta then.

Surprised he never made it as a backup goalie. He's alright. Had some decent stretches in NY/NJ.

Am I the only one, who wants to see Koivu back? Would definitely fit in the "character" category.

This is why it is going to be more and more important to draft wisely in the future. You need to build a team through the draft and just pick up smaller pieces thru UFA or trades.
