But it sure brings back memories of the tears of joy, euphoria, and envious congratulations from fans of other teams on the Rangers board when we signed Drury & Gomez. "What, we got them both? Happiest day of my life! Sather's a genius! Lots of money but they're so worth it! Give us the cup now!"
Not really, everyone knew Drury was a bit of a gross overpayment(although they loved the intangibles). People were hoping that Gomez might turn into a first line center out of Jersey(but some thought otherwise).

Pretty much everyone was irritated about the Redden contract, but hoped that it would work out.

Both Suter/Parise are better than all of those guys when we acquired them.
