Will never have faith a young superstar will be signed via free agency.

It's just so hard to see it happening unless the guy has a real desire to leave. The likelihood of there ever being a huge financial incentive for a superstar to leave is pretty small(the Stamkos deal should probably put to rest the idea that there's huge off-ice earnings anywhere) and teams have huge incentive to not lose a superstar for nothing.

The next interesting thing to see will be what happens with a superstar type player who's in a city that generally isn't seen as a very attractive destination for UFA's. So McDavid or potentially Laine or someone like that. The best UFA's who've left teams over the years left teams like New Jersey, Nashville, Ottawa and Atlanta if you want to count Kovalchuk.
