I think your analysis is fair in a lot of ways. I would definitely agree that they missed an opportunity to improve over the offseason. But saying they have 'big money problems not to far down the road' is a bit of a stretch. I believe they're the only club in the league without a $6M+ player. PLD and Andy are in for significant raises, sure, but it's not like the team needs to find $20M to do so. They'll probably get Dubinsky off their books next year with a buy-out, and trading either of Savard/Murray will help their cap, too.

Doggy - thanks for the comment. It was not my intention to compare the two, I was simply stating that the comparisons will be there given the surface similarities (late-round pick, RW, small). They're very different players, as you pointed out. Hopefully, he continues to exceed expectations
