Francis - he was on his last leg, impending UFA, only picked up for the playoff run.

Bonk - huge salary, Ottawa had to move him, 3rd is all they could get.

Lalime - again, Ottawa had to move him also. Goalie's trade values at the moment are extremely low.

Scatchard - relatively young, relatively cheap, can score 20 and is very gritty. He's worth more than a 4th or a 3rd.
