I dont think we're as dependant on UFA as the rangers or teams like that...we really dont
(key word here) go after the big UFAs...
but look at Briere, that contract isnt looking so bad on him now (I would NOT have said that 2 years ago)
bryz wasnt really an UFA signing, since he never saw the open market...
If we went after a guy like suter i'd be pretty happy (even if we overpaid a little bit)
I think you need to draft strong AND sign UFAs when its reasonable...how else can you be better than other teams? I mean you only get 1 1st pick per year...so unless you go the pittsburgh route, you need to get those UFAs will make your team better.
sure they may ask for more $$$, but the guys you draft and sign save you $$$
theres no right or wrong here, you really need both to succeed.
that said, moving richards/carter for picks and RFA/prospects is exciting...'cuz this years UFA class is superb, we could do very well for ourselves this upcoming year. i'd give Suter up to 8mil (imo if we get him, Weber will follow in 2013)
