You don't think being pressed up against the cap with terrible contracts like those were a problem? There were a few UFA's I'm sure we wanted to throw more money at but couldn't. We couldn't make any big deadline day splashes like other contenders because we were against the cap. But that was years ago. We don't need to sign anyone since we're not contending. And we didn't lose any prospects because we didn't have any good enough to throw a bunch of money at.
The way I see it is we don't need the cap space for the next few years, Fabbri was one of the few bright spots last year, so why not.
