This is a team that can, and will, continue to spend to the Cap, and they seem to be doing it the right way.  Surrounding star players with solid supporters who want to be part of a winner seems to be the way to build a team, and with the core of the Hawks signed long term and still entering their prime, they will be a perennial contender for years to come.
