White would add another puck mover and a guy who has and can play top-4 minutes. PAP might not be a sexy name, but he's a guy who can do the little things and be an effective complimentary winger.

But just to humor you, from last year:

Matt Carle
Bryan Allen
Brandon Prust
Michal Rozsival

Off the top of my head. Guys who could've improved this team.

Also, if after finishing 30th, 30th, 29th and then the following year sitting 15th in the west halfway through a season doesn't justify any Tambo 'hate'(which is ridiculous to suggest), then I don't know what does. You must have given him an incredibly long lifeline.
How are 3 dmen, and one 4th liner are going to add to our biggest need, grit in the top 6? And compare that list to this years UFAs

Perry
Ribeiro
Morrow
Horton
Clowe
Penner
Clarkson
Latendresse
Higgins
Bozak
Lapierre
Stalberg
Bickell
(and there's a lot more guys that aren't as chippy)

Visnovsky
Gonchar
Streit
Regehr
Zidlicky
Scuderi
Leopold
White
Murray
Ference
Rozsival
Redden

Backstrom
Nabokov
Howard
Nutjob
Smith

obviously there's going to be lots of them that resign with their team, but with the cap going down, this is the year to make a big splash. If we somehow strike out, then I'll be on board the fire Tambo train
