Overjoyed wasn't the word...

excited as a result of getting rid of Smith and starting something new. Personally, I get excited about change when things are going bad for so long.

What many of us didn't realize is how much money he would spend. We spent years watching him take some young Ranger players - Weight and Marchant in particular, and of course he didn't fare as well in some other deals. And heck, the fiver years leading up to Sather being hired by the Rangers saw young Edmonton teams, exciting to watch, and making the playoffs. So, many of us welcomed the change - and started scratching our heads throughout the Summer, starting with Low, and continuing to Malakhov/Schneider.
