---First of all, you don't need an inside source to tell you that Sather overpaid for those players. When was the last time anyone gave up that much for a goalie who had never made the playoffs? Osgood won a Cup as a starter, and he couldn't fetch anything. Cechmanek went for a #2. Second, those trades were all challenged by many on this board, myself included, AT THE TIME THEY WERE MADE, so please dispense with the benefit of hindisght" nonsense.
