Yes, UFA isn't everything, Sundin won't make us a contender if we sucked(aka toronto) but since we already are a contender, especially with tanguay, Sundin will make us a favourite. There's a difference. He is not our team, he is a piece of the puzzle. We are a contender with or without him, but there's plenty of contenders every year, only 1 wins, so would I take the UFA signing to go from contender to favorite when it involves a player who won't screw our cap up long term? The rival captain that suddenly is considering his options on his last or second last season of his career happens to be what the habs have been seeking for enternity. Maybe he won't sign with us and we may or may not win the cup but from what I just said, if Sundin coming to his rival and winning the cup in a story that involves the two most storied hockey franchises in the world doesn't seem like destiny then I don't know what to say.
