It depends WHEN you're talking about.

When his contract expired, an upgrade was appropriate at the time and I don't think anyone was upset that Sather chose Shanahan instead.

This year, it's fair to question whether you make an offer to Sykora after signing Gomez, especially in light of the contract that Shanahan ultimately got. Maybe he was on Sather's radar and just got lost in the whirlwind of the 2 other major signings.
