Dan Cloutier
Rob Blake
Colten Teubert
Kyle Calder
John Zeiler
Trevor Lewis
Justin Williams
Tom Preissing
I don't see that at all, also he has accomplished quite a bit, most things short of winning a cup. As for these players:

Dan Cloutier - alright, this is a legitimate complaint
Rob Blake - while terrible for the fans, this was a good signing for the team
Colten Teubert - really? The kid hasn't even played a professional game yet
Kyle Calder - he was a filler, Lombardi picked up many of them, his objective was always to build through the draft and hire filler players in the meantime
John Zeiler - What? He is a 4th line energy player that is mostly a career AHL'er. I don't see how this is a complaint, either he plays on our fourth line or helps Manchester.
Trevor Lewis - We will see this upcoming camp whether he is a bust or not, can still become a premier third liner.
Justin Williams - This one is up in the air right now, didn't do too well for us this year, but will have another season to redeem himself
Tom Preissing - Meh, another filler player and one who had a bit of promise coming off a career year with Ottawa. Who knew he was going to fall off the face of the earth?

Demitra is a good player, but I wouldn't say that he was worth our Sully plus a first. The Oilers Sully plus a first maybe, but not ours. Lewis still has the ability to turn things around for himself, and Williams, while falling off at the end, will get another chance this upcoming season to see if he can put together a strong healthy season.
