just to add to the OP ... outside of Hamrlik (who isn't the ufa signing of the century ) what UFA's have we signed thus far that has caused us to increase our status as borderline playoff team pre lock-out to our current position of conference winners and arguable cup contendor's ???
Nearly all our improvements have been as a result of solid drafting and good trades.(Kovalev for balej and a second comes to mind )This team will only continue to improve as it has for the last few years as a result of improvements from the already existing crop of drafted youngsters.
It's obvious the addition for a short time of someone like Sundin will improve the top end talent of the club but knowing that basically all our improvements have come from within so far there is no reason to believe that continued philosophy won't pay off in the same way.
Does the addition of Sundin on our top line mean other players like Kosty or Higgs or whoever see reductions in Ice time and Production only to feel the wrath of the fans and end up disheartened and gone ??
