[QUOTE=fireball8992;52089987]Would love to see that long list of 'A' list free agents who have signed in Ottawa. There's reasons past money, place that are taken into account. Is Melnyk talking a problem? Maybe, maybe not, my OPINION is that it doesn't help anything.

Ottawa is just not that attractive of a market for most free agents. Last few guys they've signed have been old and overpaid (Gonchar, Kovalev), or want to be closer to Montreal (again Kovalev, Latendresse). The rest have been lower tiered guys who saw their best chance to get playing time on the team.

Want a big name guy, find someone who doesn't have a NTC and go get him, I'd be willing to bet that unless they're from the Ottawa area, Ottawa isn't on their trade list. My opinion.[/ QUOTE]
