Wasn't Huet a steal from LA??
In the end, you'd like to have more steals than giveaways. We just cant look at the giveaway side of things. Look also at the steal side of things. That way, we are on our way at looking at the big picture.
Besides, I'm not so sure if Beauchemin would have beome a solid d-man without Randy Carlyle. Apparently, he was very hard on Francois and challenged him both mentally and physically like nobody has challenged him before. For example, I remember McGuire saying that beauchemin's fitness level was unacceptable in the eyes of carlyle. Carlyle blasted Francois to get in better shape or stay in the minors.
Huet, Kovalev, Markov, Ryder, Koivu, Souray, Zednik, Bulis, Perezhogin, Higgins, Begin, Murray are players off the top of the head that we stole either through the draft, the waivers or lopsided deals.
