Will Bolts Owner Spend?

from the St. Peterburg Times,

“I concur we have a very good core here,” Feaster said. “It’s a core capable of winning a championship. So from that standpoint our window of opportunity is still open. That’s something we’d like to take advantage of.”
The question is, will Bill Davidson, owner of Lightning parent company Palace Sports & Entertainment, provide the money to acquire a No. 1 goaltender and a scoring wing, the biggest holes on a team eliminated Sunday from the first round of the playoffs for the second straight season?
Feaster said his preliminary budget for next season is $40-million. That is about $4-million less than this season and could be up to $9-million below the yet-to-be-set league salary cap.
Coaches and players said this is no time to pull back, though CEO Tom Wilson said Palace Sports will lose $9-million on its Tampa operation this fiscal year.
