Cmon Boyler? Just because Sather has an out clause with the signings means they didnt do damage to this team over the past several years?

I could list a whole litany of reason on how these UFA agent signings hurt the team, but the top 2 are:

1. these players were signed to perform roles they were simply incapable of filling.
2. Paying some of these players to go away takes resources away from other important areas, namely scouting

How in the hell can you defend what amount to some of the worst UFA signings in the history of the NHL?
