If Anaheim really wanted to keep Kariya they would have qualified him. Committing to Fedorov long term instead was a mistake. The guy is in his mid 30's, and in terms of production has actually been outscored by the supposedly underachieving Kariya by a 392 to 345 margin in the last five years. Kariya played with a cellar dweller, Fedorov played with a bunch of future Hall of Famers. To not qualify Kariya and then turn around and sign a guy who isn't an upgrade for almost the same money long term is just nonsense. Goes to show money wasn't the issue.
