They got paid what the market deemed appropriate. I can't stand the people that sit here and act like Sather overpaid them by 2 million each on purpose. At the time they were great signings and every "expert" who now bashes us has us as one of the top-5 teams in the league. The signings made sense. They just didn't work out.
Redden is the one that should have never happened...
Gotta disagree. Even at the time there was a lot of concerns about the types of salaries they were and the no-trade clause in Drury's contract.
The problem with a lot of Sather's moves isn't the players, as much as it compounding the player with the contract.
I'll also disagree that they paid what the market deemed approriate. Too often, Sather seems to be bidding against himself when it comes to guys he falls in love with.
Bottom line is simple, good teams get the right players at the right price. We have no constructed a good team.
