Just to expand on that though, the Hawks traded scraps for Sharp, Versteeg, and got Ladd in a hockey deal who all played major roles the Cup winning team. Add in major contributions from Bolland,Keith, Hjalmarsson, Brouwer , and Bufyglien who were all drafted outside the first round, and you have a deep team. IMO, the Oilers need some of those 2nd rounders like Klefbom to contribute.
Most rebuilding teams can't land the premiere UFA's, so its best to avoid that approach. Even the Hawks didn't sign Hossa untilafter they made it to the WCF, and that took a cheater contract to do it.
