They got rid of two, if you include Sydor. The return on Sydor was pretty good and Sanderson was having a horrid year.

One thing I don't understand is how fans say that an expansion team shouldn't go after UFAs. IF you have the money you might as well spend it if it will increase you chances of winning.

At the beginning of the year, many thought the Jackets would make the POs. They didn't, but Nash and Zherdev have come into their own. WHo is to say that the additions of Marchant and Sydor didn't pay off if they helped the kids develop and provided leadership?
