Because Doug MacLean thought that Mattias Timander, Jean-Luc Grand-Pierre, and Jamie Heward were better-suited for a team that couldn't score at a meaningful pace.

He had a rough patch at the beginning of his one-year tenure in Columbus, probably related to having never played on the NHL surface before. Toward the end of the year, he'd really started to make the adjustments and look like an NHL-caliber player.
