Every year we all go through the same thing when it comes to UFA's, however, it always proves that the best improvement a team can make is from within.

I'm one of the few who really isn't all that interested in going after Sundin...not at the price it's going to cost at least. Nothing against Mats who's a solid player, but throwing 6 or 7M at him considering his age/production, just doesn't entice me personally.

I'd rather the improvement comes from within and that Gainey can pull the trigger on some type of deal at the deadline
I don't follow your logic. Sundin has shown he's still very productive, and if he'll take a one-year deal, why not offer him $7M? Acquiring a player at the deadline costs us assets. Sundin does not.
