Exactly what I was wondering. We lose some to UFA and we gain. Draft picks are not wasted either (Pacioretty) and Gorges not being there is a joke. Anyways the methodology of the whole exercise is doubtful at best. Some players could be switched from one list to another. Wisniewski for instance was acquired in a trade in the first place, same with Tanguay. Pouliot was let go at UFA, but he looks far better as a bust so he put it in the second list. The ''dearly missed'' players were all acquired by the team anyways and left for a reason or another, Habs deserve credit for getting them in the first place...
Even the best teams sometimes lose good players so its not overly shocking to see the canadiens lose some decent players.
Furthermore of the roster he posted there are very few players of which we can't find an equivalent in free agency.
