I actually dont think we should be going crazy over UFA's .... We have come this far in trying to integrate young players into the lineup over the last two seasons, why not just go the extra mile and do it for one more year in order to set the team up for the next decade. Instead of taking chances with overpriced quantities on the FA market, just do the right thing. Sure we could use a UFA or two, but I would rather get Langenbrunner rather than an Arnott.
We have been clamoring for a proper rebuild for 10 years now, and now that we finally have the assets to undertake that direction, people want to fill the team up with more veterans. I guess that's the type of person Generation X is (the age gorup that posts on this board). They have a short attention span and they want instant gratification. Too bad, because watching the team grow is very exciting for me as a fan.
