No, he kept him because he wanted to try and re-sign him and wanted to retain his rights as long as possible. Sometimes that works out, sometimes it doesn't. Not getting a late 2nd round pick (which probably has less than a 20% chance of yielding an NHL regular) isn't as bad as most HF'rs like to portray it to be.

Usually, JR doesn't sign extensions mid season so this was really new territory for him by signing Gleason and Ruutu that way.
