you need to draft and develop those guys. but those guys also take time to develop. so its not an either or situation, its more of a do both. where you sign vets to limited term deals to help the team now, while drafting and developing those guys with the hope that in 2-3 years when those free agent contracts expire those kids are ready to step in and fill the roles from within. doing it the right way takes time and patience isn't a virtue that dolan has right now...plugging those spots with ufas might not be the perfect option but it is preferable over trading away kids in panic moves to plug them.
