They all seem to get signed before then so it seems like a waste of time to think that a team can just sit back and sign the young guns.

Amen. Truer words never said. Trying to construct a team (and payroll) based on heisting other team's superstars sometime in the fuuuuuture is lousy strategy, to be kind.

Drives me nuts on the Fishsticks board when fellow fans pine for potential UFAs...in the summers of 2009 and 2010.

Here's a better idea. Draft and develop your own stars. NYR is doing just that, NYI is now trying.
