Agreed completely. UFA signings rarely, if ever, have that drive that the homegrown players seem to have. Bring a kid up through the ranks and show your faith in him, and he'll play his ass off for you as long as he can. Hard to find with hired guns. Not to mention the impact it can have on building cohesion and chemistry in the organization.
