Free Agency is fun to watch but generally not a precursor to a teams success, especially when adding more than a key player or two imo.
That said it certainly paid off for Ottawa last year. But generally teams loading up with FA have many, many holes to fill. And adding top dollar FAs in numbers, all coming from different coaching philosophies can blow-up.
Strategic additions like Patrick Watkins in Edmonton last year, adding a key player familiar with the coach is solid. But I'm wary of teams adding 4,5,6 FA in a fell swoop. Outside of Ottawa last year it just never seems to work.
Toronto focusing on one guy, NI LT Bourke, seems like a sane way to go.
