Simple as that. And the rest of those guys (Semin, et al) he didn't believe in or didn't want ot over-pay for going into the new CBA (Doan). Personally I give the man an A- for his summer's efforts. And no way he's done; he'll make a move within a month or so here. He won't wait to the deadline because it's too close to the post-season. If a GM is worried about getting home ice, they have to make moves early this year.
Hope I could share your optimism. But something about his moves, and his statements, suggests he's fine going into at least this year's playoffs with the current setup.

IMO, just like the possibility of firing Bylsma, it'll take another first round upset for Shero to contemplate major additions to this roster. Him and Bylsma seem to think the current roster is good enough to win it all as long as we "get to our game".
