Since it's a rebuild and as Davidson said it's going to take some time before Columbus can realistically be a solid team, should we not expect Davidson(Howson) to go after any significant UFA's for the next couple of years? The Oilers plan a couple of years ago was to develop their young guns and try to to improve, one season at a time. Only UFA players they were after were to fill in some small gaps(Hordichuk, Eager, Belanger). Plus they said they didn't expect big names to sign with a team that's at the bottom of the standings. Once the team shows that they're close to competing for the Cup, that is when they plan on going for a homerun and going after a big UFA. Is that what Columbus is going to do? Wait a couple of years to let the rebuild finish then when(hopefully) they're a playoff team, go for a homerun?
