I know it sounds stupid, but if you're a UFA who wants to win, I highly doubt montreal's record+controversy are a selling point.
If the habs were to make a splash and say trade Plekanec+ for a legit big #1 center then I'm sure our perception around the league would change.
If you were UFA, can you seriously say you feel this management would do what it takes to win? I really don't see UFAs thinking that despite if it's true or not.
I think we should focus on second tier free agents this summer. Get a year or two out of them then flip 'em for more draft picks when the prospects like Bournival, Ellis, Gallagher or Beaulieu are ready. UFAs like Gaustad or Moore, a physical bottom pairing d-man.
