and anyone that feels we aren't contenders. Well. We had a very competitive team...until this year. A bad year with many slumps and injuries. Many will bounce back. Add in a top draft pick and the youth coming up. Many UFAs would see that as a favorable situation. Not to mention we have the cap space and willingness to spend
People also probably hear from the players being shipped out of how big a circus it is and they also probably notice how many good players we've shipped out for nothing, I very much doubt a lot of players looking to win will want to be a part of that, especially considering we're in the cellar right now.

The 'many UFAs' that would consider Montreal are probably considering it because they'd get more money/term over any other place. And none of those guys would be top end UFAs (like Parise and Suter, which people all think we can throw even the kitchen sink at them).
