This is technically true. But contextually wrong.
This is the new NHL with a cap. Players are let go for peanuts to allow UFA signings or simply meet the cap requirements.
Zednik was let go in return fo an early 3rd round pick, so that we can get Johnson against a mid 4th round pick. Great deal !
Bulis was let go for nothing, so that we can sign Samsonov without giving anything away. Great deal again !
