Without a doubt, however...If we could go out and sign guys like Kovalchuk or Havlat or Ovechkin or what have you, before another team drafted him...This point would make sense.

But we're forced to get older, much worse euro's than what we could get if there wasn't a draft.

There also isn't any UFA/RFA bull ****.
