Management should have foreseen it. I was all for trading Souray and also wanted Ryder out. I understand why they didn't do it, but we can now say it was a mistake.
I would have also parted ways with Komi. It's absolutely important for you as a manager to know just how big the chances of re-signing one of your assets are.
You can't move everybody, I'm aware of that, but our asset management over the past years have been mediocre to say the least.
When you decide not to trade your UFA assets at the trade deadline the % of losing them for nothing goes through the roof. Unless they really want to play here, the odds are against you. We can blame the management all we want but the Habs were always front runners for that 8-7 spot at that time so trading these guys would just make no sense. Like ive said, its easy to talk after when we get eliminate of the playoffs and we lose players after for nothing.
