For the other 20-25 teams, I don't believe winning has that much influence. Therefore, out of those 20-25 teams, we're right at the bottom.
And because we're right at the bottom, it's very difficult to sign those UFA's and become one of those very few teams where winning will trump those other factors.
PS, and can you please demonstrate how Ottawa become a UFA hot spot when they started winning?
For one, I remember Peter Bondra waiwing his NTC to play there...there might have been a few other players who did the same and never landed there. Honestly this is based on my memory....but feel free to explaing how for 20-25 teams winning is completely irrelevant in how they attract players.
