I think our year to have a really good team is going to be the 2009-2010 season. Next year's UFA crop is what we should be saving our money for unless we can sign Hossa, which is highly unlikely. This is why you don't throw away third round picks; drafts are so important in the salary cap era. Being able to draft gives you so much more flexibility when you need to sign a UFA or make a trade.
29 other teams will be giving him an offersheet too though if they can afford it. We won't be the only suitors.
