    Hi y'all,
    I was wondering if there's any correlation between our cap space and ticket prices going up? Last year we fired Michel Therrien who was resigned in the summer for $3 million per year. He still has 2 years left to his contract, this year and next year. We then went out and gave Claude Julien 5 years at $5 million per year making him the second highest paid coach in the league behind Mike Babcock. I know as a business Molson has a budget to spend on the team, even though we have $9 million cap space, internally as a business spending money on coaches like $3 million for Therrien and $5 million for Julien for a total of $8 million on coaching, do you think we have $9 million in cap space or $1 million business cap space to spend on players?

    I don't think there's any correlation what so ever, the organization makes money hand over fist every year.

    The cap space is 100% result of MB's ineptitude and nothing else.
