What are people's thoughts on dealing with players who are about to become UFA's?

I agree with those saying Chevy has to figure out who is/isn't going to be here past this season before the trade deadline and deal anyone who isn't. That's just smart asset management. We can't afford to lose guys for nothing. I suppose if we're right in the midst of a playoff race, we might hold onto guys to continue the push, but I certainly hope we're not buyers just to squeek into the playoffs. The only reason to be a significant buyer at the deadline is if you are pushing for a cup run in my opinion.
What I'm most interested in is how much of a draw we'll be in free agency. I suspect Winnipeg will be a polarizing destination among players. There will be some who would never come here in a million years, but there will be others that place us near the top of their list because of the fan support and atmosphere in the arena.
I've never been a fan of building a team through free agency, but it would be nice to be able to add some pieces when necessary.
