In the offseason before 2005-06 Chara was a member of the Sens, Savard was a member of the Thrashers and Pronger was TRADED to the Oilers.

JFJ did good in the players he acquired. Allison played 66 games and put up 60 points, and Lindros put up with 22 points in 33 games. Both battled injuries which is a good reason why the Leafs missed the playoffs by a point.

JFJ would have done a better job had he not been pressured by ownership.
