I couldn't argue against that. That is basically what Lemieux did to save the Pens. He knew the profits would eventually come. And to follow that analogy, if the Pens end up losing some of there stars, it will be solely because of money. To the previous point I was making, they can only keep a finite number of high dollar players. Because when you have a "budget", once the money is spent...that's all there is.
A simple case of have and have nots.
I'm not sure you can argue the point though when your admitting that 6 of the 20 highest paid players are on your team. What is that? Potentially 67% of your starting lineup. 30% of the entire league. Just sayin'
And listen, I stated earlier in the thread that I had no dog in this race. It really dosen't matter to me one bit. I'm just trying to rationalize to you why it is that the yanks are a love 'em or hate 'em team. It's probably nothing you haven't heard before, I know.
I also have no problem giving props to fans who are level headed and have earned some respect, but I will, however not offer the same for those who demand it.
