Gomez
Drury
Redden
Rozsival to lesser extent
Richards

None of them were able to physically dominate and impose their will. Gaborik is a hybrid as he will show up for game and then disappear again.
I'm fine with trading for good young players. It's the expensive FA's that I don't want. If we can turn Gaborik into some younger, cheaper assets with upside, I'm fine with that. However, we have to be realistic about where that's likely going to put our team in terms of cup chances.

I dunno, I'm kind of going around in circles in my head and with my posts, haha.
