Read what azrok22 wrote. You want top UFA talent, but its rarely available.

So that means you should go after middle of the road talent and pay them huge money? That means you should pay two second line centers first line money and a second pair defenseman first pair money? It's one thing to over pay one guy, but to over pay this many players in a salary cap league. It's madness.

The team needs a scorer. If we aren't gettng one through free agency or trade, then we have to draft one. How are we going to do that when we have a team that's good enough to make the playoffs and not good enough to do anything there. We're not going to get high enough picks to draft an impact scorer, and we don't have the cap space to acquire one should he become available.

Just look at the teams that win. Great goaltending by itself is not enough. You have to score goals.
