It's also important when signing UFAs to focus specifically (and exclusively) on their play in their UFA-season. Because God knows, if they have their career year when UFA looms at the end of the season, it means they will generally play just as well after getting that big contract.

We see it every year with players such as Khabibulin, Aucoin, Zhamnov, etcetera. who all went on to dominate with their new teams.

imagine how much goals he would have with Dagenais and Ryder ...

i mean , if Ribeiro got 20 last season , Savard would probably get 60-70 goals with those players .
