to be honest the focus at this point should be our development system. It's fantastic that guys like Mueller can quickly make the transition to pro with little or any time in the AHL; however, we need to cultivate the Yandle's, Summers, Porters, etc. who are going to need development time before they make that step to the NHL. That's the only way to ensure long-term success in the mold of a Detroit, New Jersey, San Jose, Buffalo, etc. We need to build from within so we don't look at UFA day as the saving grace for this franchise. Given the dollar figures that fly around on July 1st, do we ever really want to be a player in that type of environment? Something to think about.
