Dan Ellis never signed with us.
Dustin Boyd left for Europe after 1 season with us with most of the time being in the AHL.
Streit left as a free agent because they wouldn't play him on D.
Halak was traded for Lars Eller and Ian Schultz.
Grabovski, S. Kostitsyn, Streit, Halak for Eller, Pateryn and Schultz.
You wonder why I hate our former management.
Eller is a good player, I like him.
Robert Lang was a good player. What you're doing is reducing his contribution to zero, but that's only because of his injury. Robert Lang was beast in 2008-09, 39 points in 50 games, which is the worst season that I can recall as a Habs for injuries. We were a legitimate Stanley Cup contender at the start of 2008-09, and strengthening that by giving up Grabovski was a good move.
Pateryn has bottom pairing potential.
