Bozak and Gilroy were supposed "elite ufas" a couple years ago and I haven't been impressed with either guy in the least.

And how do you know Regier hasn't been in on these guys. These "sources" don't know every conversation that has taken place.
Thank you.

I know there are some hits in the NCAA UFA market but they're few and far between. People get wound up over these players every year and so few end up being real impact NHLers. I'd be happy with adding a couple Derek Whitmore's to the organization but... it's not something I'm losing sleep over.
