Quick question for the board. I've been thinking about the point that is made again and again regarding our defense and how guys need to be here two or three years before they can start in our D. I wonder if such a scheme doesn't hurt us in the long run because it creates an intense pressure for the team to keep vets on D.

In a salary cap era, you need to be able to cut ties and move on at the appropriate time. But requiring two years 'in the funnel' for a replacement is going to make personeel moves difficult.

So I guess I'm interested in what others say about this. Does the complex defense cause us to overpay on our vet contracts?
