Personally I am tired of hearing no signing UFA concerns...
We have a very solid team, and we werent in a major need of UFA's to begin with. with so much talent burgeoning in our minor league system (other than defense, but we are solid with a good top 8 there)
I fail to see the need to sign more players to get us higher.
We have FIVE top 2 liners IMO guaranteed. Ribeiro, Koivu, Ryder, Higgins, Kovalev.

We have FIVE guys heading in to camp who can win the FINAL top 6 role outright:
Zednik, Perezhogin, Latendresse, Kostitsyn, Bonk.

We have another guy who can surprise: Plekanec

We have quality depth players in Begin, Murray, Bonk (if he's not the #2) and many of those competing for higher roles with the club... Not to mention Downey, LaPierre, Chipchura, and Ferland...

We are building within, many of our guys are so green, that the only way for them is UP UP UP!!!

UFA's are not meant to build a club, that just stagnates the true club's potential of rising to the cream of the crop. We must depend on our own guys, which are coming close to being NHL ready players...
