I was only attempting to post a list of the people who left for various reasons.

Yes the Avs didn't offer a contract to Bruno, but reports were that he wanted to stay.

Lappy wanted to stay, but the Avs wouldn't budge on their offer.

The basis was that the Avs have a perceived value of these players, and won't budge on that perceived value. Whether that's fair or not to the player, that's always a case by case basis.
