You make it sound like Lou didn't offer Kadri 7mx7 and he just picked Calgary over them at that dollar value.
"This team's window is now. We have some nice pieces who will be here for a long time (Barzal, Dobson, Sorokin, Pelech, Pulock etc.) but a majority of this core's window is now and will be off the books in a couple more years. Should have maximized this window at at all costs. To get as close to a Cup Final as we twice were without seriously improving the roster is a crime."
Those guys that you mentioned are going to be there for a long time are the core.</div></div>
1) Lou said the cost to move a contract was too high. So no, he couldn't offer Kadri $7x7 because there would have been no space for Dobson/Romanov that followed
2) I said we have some nice pieces, but the rest of the core (Lee, Nelson, Palmieri, Beauvillier, Pageau, Mayfield etc) are like 1-3 years from being off the books. Then take into consideration the ages of the players I just mentioned. They need a kick in the ass now to try and get them over the hump before it's too late
