I think JR just had X amount of dollars to use and he signed Poni and Stewart, hoping for the best. Granted, he could have saved some money by not signing Kaberle, but he was looking for a PP specialist AND no one really knew Faulk would play like he has.

JR HAS said that this may be the first offseason in franchise history where the organization goes out and signs one of top free agents. We'll see, I suppose...
