I had thought about that, and perhaps you're right. But it isn't like Shero has brought in a couple of stiffs - Ruutu and Eaton are both solid players who bring things to the table that the team has lacked for years. Plus, they have to spend at least $28 million under the new CBA anyway, and are looking to spend around the same amount as last season - around $33 million. So there will be at least one guy, maybe two, brought in who are going to get sizeable contracts.
