Yes, I would trust this much more than someone saying "a buddy of mine said" without having specifics on where it's coming from.

You do know, the same people that ***** every year about the Wings spending up to the cap & not leaving room for trades at the deadline will be the same ones bitching if Kenny doesn't spend up to the cap before the start of training camp.
