I know fans want the Avs to go out and start spending money, but short of landing Parise or Suter, I think the Avs should hold out for one more year before spending big.
The first reason I think this is because the 2013 UFA class is deeper than the 2012 class, but also because the CBA will be different by then, which could affect long term, big money contracts.
