I was going nuts on these boards trying to convince guys that Souray had to be moved. He would have gotten us a 12-25 first, I'm sure. And maybe a prospect.

He was a perfect fit for a contender trying to win it all that year.

That is EXTREMELY rare for a UFA at deadline. You cannot pass that up.

It was not moving Souray at the deadline that made me give up on Gainey.
