I am not sure what you mean by "letting" them go. They were free agents and had 29 other teams potentially bidding for them. Just because a player was here before doesn't mean we have an advantage to keep him. Giving Prust, a 4th line player, 10M dollars would have been absurd and it would also be absurd to expect Prust to turn down Montreals offer to stay with us.

Mitchell is a player who a bunch of people didn't like when he was here and is only being brought up now because he happens to be having a nice season in Colorado.

Fedotenko is a nice player but he certainly doesn't help you out offensively.

Additionally over the past 2 years (excluding this one because we are looking at a during -offseason comparison):

So are you honestly going to tell me the moves made in the offseason were expected to harm our offense? Because looking at this data that is simply untrue.
