Except the NHL went out of their way to help Hulsizer's bonds and hand-picked Jamison to make a move. Maybe when it came down to brass tacks they all underwhelmed, but the fact remains that they had an opportunity to help both men get the deal done, but never budged from their asking price to contribute.
