From Justin Bourne at Puck Daddy:
Amateur capology is at its thickest in the off-season. “$1.7M for Marcel Goc? Why that’s at least $200K too much!” I do it as much as anyone, but I acknowledge that it would sure be nice to see more analysis of how Goc will fit in to the Panthers on-ice roster than their on-paper payroll.
If there are any fans that are going to agree with me on this, it’s those of the Buffalo Sabres and Florida Panthers. The media can and should dissect their off-season acquisitions from a financial standpoint (that’s part of their job) ... but the fans?
Your team was willing to spend some bucks, and because of that you got some better players. Your team is better. Your chances of winning the Stanley Cup are better. Who cares about the price tag if you can afford it?
