GMs Must Make The Right Moves

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

“With this new system, you’ve got to spend your money right and you’ve got make the playoffs or you’re going to be in trouble,” a league executive said last week. “You’re going to see more GMs paying the price. (Barnett’s firing) might be the start of a trend.
“In the past, if things didn’t go right for your team, you’d just go out and spend more cash. Now, GMs are having their mistakes exposed. (If) they don’t spend the cash the right way, they’re going to hear about it or get fired like Barnett did. That’s the thing with the salary cap: There’s nowhere for GMs to hide.”
