I could argue that Columbus actually made bigger moves in free agency than St. Louis did. Of course, Davidson arriving in St. Louis also had a hell of a lot more talent than Howson inherited in Columbus, and their awful 2005-06 season was largely related to pretty much every key player being injured for long stretches of time. And of course, they also had a lot more talent in the pipeline from the 2000-06 drafts as well...
