Stu lets take your imaginary scenario and add my imaginary twist to it.
Lets say the Rangers go out and sign their free agent. And he turns out to be the next Pierre Turgeon (a big contract that they dont want because he isnt producing). And keeping Turgeon in the NHL forces the Rangers to keep their young guys (for example Lundmark) from playing a regular NHL shirt and thus he does not develop.
Now our supposedly cash strapped Calgary doesn't sign anyone so they play Chuck Kobasew in the NHL with the roster spot and he develops and leads the Flames to the cup.
Now why is my imaginary scenario any better or worse then yours is?
