Before that, there was a time when Michael Nylander had to go, and be replaced with a much better UFA signing.

Chris Drury? Matt Cullen? Before that, Bobby Holik, and Eric Lindros, and Petr Nedved? Mark Messier?

If only there was something teams could do to avoid having to fill the most important niche on their roster with overpaid free agents, few of whom rarely live up to expectations . . .
Nylander never should've left. He, Jagr, and Straka were dynamite. I say we blame Messier. If he doesn't bail in 97....
