I was referring specifically to the argument that I reference in my post. I agree that even without a free agent, our team could improve based on the improvement of our young players.

You don't want to offer a ton of money to a guy like Sundin, but you're happy giving up a first round pick to rent him at the deadline from some other team that gave him a ton of money? That seems to be what you're suggesting, which is what I don't understand.
