St-Louis doesnt regret Elliot but seem ok with Halak too. Would they be worse team with Elliot + Eller + $ saves on Halak contract ?

Colorado doesn't regret Giguere, but maybe have regret they gave a lot for Varlamov.

Philadelphia regret they didnt went cheaper than 5 333 333$ for a proven Bryzgalov.
Tampa Bay regret they didnt went cheaper than 3 500 000$ for a proven Roloson.

Do Toronto regret their cheap goalie? Maybe, but for the first time in a while they are fighting for the playoff!! In the past they tried very hard to land an elite goalie, they gave asset for Raycroft, Toskala, Giguere and it never made them competitive.

What about Chicago? Maybe they regret, but they are competitive and their GM gave publicly his confidence to Crawford.

Washington? Maybe they regret now they didnt keep Varlamov, but their consolation price (1st+2nd) are year away. Vokoun number are not that bad.
It's worth noting that all of the teams who picked up mediocre goalies are, in fact, mediocre teams. San Jose, Chicago and Tampa are the only teams on that list that were cup contenders last year, and I think they all regret their signings now, although I could be wrong about SJ.
