Winning and money are two things that will always attract free agents.
Winning might be a couple years off, but looking at the collected youth...It's going to happen eventually, my guess is the next year or two.
Money is a different matter. Wang is still in charge, and my opinion of him has been that of a cheapskate. I could be totally wrong, or maybe the new arena will spur him to do right by his team, but I know him for the Doug Weight style, short term, high cap hit, low salary type deals, or the Snow/DiPietro thing, but he has landed a few big name free agents, Boyes and Streit being among them.
Spending money, not necessarily on players salaries, but with in the team for new/better facilities goes a long way too.
