How could having one extra decent defensemen or forward possibly ruin chemistry?

Edit: It's easy to say in hindsight "They clearly spent all their money as best as they could!" But I still fail to see how that's true. Clearly, the Hawks management agrees. They got rid of him at the first opportunity. I'm sure if you check threads in their forum from that year, you'd find the Hawks fans would have preferred to see Huet's money spent somewhere else to fill a need; you know, to give them the best chance of winning. Huet's contract did NOT help prepare them to win a Cup. They just happened to win in spite of that fact. That doesn't strike me as an ideal model for GMing; good GMs shouldn't have to hope a team bails out their mistakes and wins anyways.
Didn't you facepalm my thread Over/Under until Bobrovsky is starter?


Just wondering...
