I understand this question. It`s one that alot of habs fans are asking...but if I can explain this really shouldn;t be too hard to understand....We are building through the draft....we are not giving up any draft picks or other assets to get these UFA`s. These UFA`s are not preventing our young prospects from developing. These UFA`s can make us a better hockey team right now,while our prospects develop.
These UFA`s could make other current contracted veterans such as gionta, desharnais, bourque, markov, moen, etc expendable and tradeable for more valuable assets (picks and prospects), but without creating a whole in our lineup because of the acquisition of the briere`s the morrow`s the jagr`s, the whoever`s.
