You know what SoS...

Sather had little choice but to gut the roster. He had guys coming off contracts and soon-to-be UFAs/retirees on the roster, most likely done on purpose to do exactly what he did in March, but I'm not convinced. By March, he had no other choice but to do what he did. He had some of the better individual players as trading chips and got rid of them, most of whom, ex Leetch, were to become UFA at the end of the season and possibly gone for nothing (Nedved was a team option, I believe). He did what he did because he had no option - no, given what he has, it's important to see what he does with it, in terms of trades, UFA signings and draft picks.
