Olli had to go, both parties needed a change in scenary. Ballard's also been a huge presence in the locker room while giving a solid defensive presence as well as doing very well offensively. Boynton's been pretty solid while here, save for a few lapses, and he sticks up for his teammates. Olli mailed it in last year while trying to get JM fired.

again, the team needed a solid netminder.
Olli needing to move on is irrelevant - the return on him was horrible.

Caber has bounced back well but it's not like he's outperforming his contract.

Didn't the pick from the Vokoun trade end up being Colin Wilson? He might have addressed a need but it's not like the organization didn't pay a hefty price for it.
