Bob consciously let him go (he had plan that way before the end of the season) to open up some room for a valuable free agent.
His thinking was... why bother with Bulis as a second line winger... and the end result is that now we have Samsonov to take his spot. Samsonov scores more and knows how to pass as opposed to Bulis.
There we tons of those type of example two seasons ago... we are much better off with the replacements than the original pieces.
