It's not the fact that we want to sign more, but more-so the fact that with the small number of top 6 UFA's, and the "undersirable" situation Ottawa is in, the top 6 UFA's will likely be gone to other, more desirable locations. We will likely be signing some people, such as the leafs did with Macarthur, who are not top 6 players, but will be given the chance here in Ottawa. We will have maybe one prosect who can jump into a top 6 role, excluding Butler whom I have in there, and thats if everything works out for our first round pick.

Of course this is assuming we dont want to throw a guy like Greening, or Foligno, or Condra in the top 6, pretty much solidifying another lottery pick next year, which is reasonble to believe.
