The only way we will get a legit player is via trade if that player doesn’t have a trade clause to stop it. Even then, that player won’t stay for long as legit players need to be paid more eventually. Drafting is our only hope and even then after the ELC is over, I have my doubts. Reading how low our actually salary is this year versus cap hit is really embarrassing for Sens fans.
It's not embarrassing at all right now, because theoretically this is all part of that rebuild scheme. You purge the big $$ players for picks and prospects and you have about 2 years at the bottom where you should be paying little to nothing, THEN you pay.
The problem is, no one in the world trusts Melnyk to spend when the time comes.
