I am not saying that they arent good. I am looking at their contracts and how they handcuff the team. The cap is dropping quite a bit next year. They are paying Kronwall like a #1/2 D man and he isnt (4.75M/yr). He can hit like a mother but that is it. And Howard isnt bad but the 5.3M long term deal they gave him when he really isnt that proven hurts. That is top 5 goalie money and he isnt top 5.
The only truly elite talent on that roster is Datsyuk.
