I wasn't being entirely serious with the saving pennies on the extension line but at a certain point the proof's gotta be in the pudding.  Either they're going to spend or they won't, the excuses don't fly forever.  Sure there's no overt smoking gun suggesting they are penny pinching (like Madoff with the Mets) and no Josh Kosman constantly waving around financial statements in the Post, but some of us were saying that with Vanderbeek too, when they still had one of the highest payrolls until near the end.  McMullen was called a cheapskate and in a lot of cases he was but THAT team still managed to have a top eight-top ten payroll in several seasons. 

These owners, sure it's nice they aren't butting in per se but they've basically operated at a Moneyball level with both the Devils and Sixers to this point consistenly being in the bottom five-ten payrolls.  I just don't see why they continue to get the blind benefit of the doubt when there's no current evidence that actually supports your or others' view they will spend other than Shero pinkyswearing there's no restrictions and vague reports we were 'in' on certain players.  For years we've been told we'll spend when the time's right but we've banked useless cap space for years and now we're staring at an offseason where we may lose Hall because we've spent too much time ****ing around, and reset the rebuild AGAIN.

What did you want us to spend our useless cap space on exactly ? The top free agents like Tavares and Van Riemsdyk didn't want to sign in NJ so what now? Wanna throw a 80m, 7 years contract to guys like Vanek, bozak, perron or filpula ? 

Spending money just to spend money is not any better

I really don't understand how people think that throwing money at FAs for the sake of doing something is the right answer. Posts complaining about the off season seem to pop up here several times a week.
