It also made the Rozsival signing, which IMO was fair market value, bad in context, because we couldn't afford another contract of that magnitude with Hank, Gomez, Redden and Drury already on the books.

Boogaard is another one, however, that should have never happened. (Granted, on a different scale.)
I agree...I'm just part of that very small group that can't fault Sather at all for Gomez and Drury. We were coming off a fantastic 06-07 season in which we should have gone deeper in the playoffs, and he got exactly what the team needed. It just didn't work...I wish more people would realize that...
