Reminding Dave

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
Did Nonis forget his predecessor Brian Burke struggled for years to assemble a competitive team under the old system with a payroll one-third what teams like New York or Detroit or Colorado or Philadelphia were spending? Did Nonis forget that it was virtually impossible for any team like the Canucks to develop, and keep, young stars because those aforementioned teams would simply outbid them for their services when they became free agents, or that teams like Vancouver regularly dealt young stars because they couldn't afford to pay them beyond their entry level deals?
much more on the NHL including goaltending issues for the Rangers, Yotes and Flames...
