Kessel was a trade, and Komi and Beauche? I don't believe I said Edmonton can attract more UFA's than Toronto, my point was basically that Toronto has had no more success in the free agent department than Edmonton has... surprising, considering Toronto is the center of the universe and all... just saying!
I consider Belfour, Cujo and Mogliny superstars. There havent been many superstar UFA's as of late and the ones that are available Toronto had little interest in them. The difference is Toronto was in cap trouble/rebuild mode and weren't concerned in getting top notch UFA's the past couple of seasons, Edmonton wanted top end UFA's and couldn't get any....

just saying...
