It wasn't "Hovinen is better, let's get him and screw Ericksson." It was a conscious decision to let him walk. If they thought he was good enough, they would have made room one way or another back when they let him walk, or offered him a contract sometime down the road.
They haven't because they don't think he is worth it
. It isn't a real hard concept.
