We haven't signed any "in their prime" big name free agents.

I'll go with Willie Mitchell & Rob Scuderi to answer the question. Thought Handzus was a good signing as well.

Regardless, your point is well taken that we had to overpay for Scuds and zus and give an extra year to Mitchell (over the Caps/Sharks offers).

It should be noted that Scuderi said that he had multiple offers from other clubs that were the same as the Kings, but he thought the Kings were up and coming- he chose the Kings because we gave him the best chance to win.

Also, with Dean in charge with one eye towards the cap, we will never be the high bid on free agents. Look at Kovi and Parise. We weren't even close in terms of the money. All things considered, I'm OK with this approach, as it allows us to be competitive for the long term.
