do some of these signings today make last years signings look better?

Is there such thing as an UFA and a good contract? Honestly any player with talent that is an UFA is going to get more money and years than they are worth. That's the way free agency works. There are so many people who say 'I like this guy, but not at that price' well, so does every GM in the league, but they HAVE to pay that price if they want them.
This is why it is necessary to build from within and use UFA to fill a small whole. Unfortunately the Rangers have used it in the past two years to get their three best (presumably) position players.
As more teams have the ability to sign good players there will be even worse contracts thrown around. It really makes me wonder if any of these owners and GM's remember why we lost a season of hockey.
