Zednik & Bulis were great additions to the Habs !
How quickly people forget !
Zednik had 3 great seasons here out of 4.
He scored 22, 31, 26 goals in those seasons.
He scored some clutch goals in the playoffs : 8 points in 4 games against Boston before Maclaren elbowed him.
He is in no way a bust !
You have to judge him by the entire time he spent here : not just the last disapointing season.
As for Bulis, he was a great speedy 3rd liner who could fill in on the 2nd line when needed. Good on the PK, solid defensively. Overall in the regular season he ended up being an even 0 in +/- for his time with the habs.
Besides, in the original trade we got rid of the albatross of Trevor Linden's salary and an underacheiving Zubrus to boot.
That is one of the most level-headed post of the thread.
I must add that Mathieu Garon filled his role as a backup goaltender really well; I don't understand why some people would say they are happy that 100% of the players belonging to the 1st list posted are gone.
