Recchi, Sykora, Fedotenko as free agents. Hossa, Kunitz, Guerin and Neal through trades. Not to mention the bottom 6 guys.

And I'm sorry, but Feds was absolutely a respectable forward. He was our 4th leading scorer in the Cup run. He is a good player. He's not a great player by any means and he's taken a step back since 2009 but he was a good pick-up for us the first time around and a very easily explained re-sign the second time around with his playoff performance considered.
