Hutton isn't the best, but with his contract and what he's had to go through this year (backing rinne, moving aside when maz got hot, dubnyk being brought in) he's played pretty darn well.

and i'd have to say cullen and nystrom weren't the mistakes. otherwise, like what you had to say.
Nystrom is ok but overpaid like Hendrick who was way overpaid. Cullen and Stalberg I think are because to get someone significant we are going to have over pay. The grinders want to come here and the two way players will come here but the offensive players not so much unless overpaid at this point. Poile is alway looking for salvation army type deals and hope to catch lightning in a bottle. So it always seems like there is the perception that their money is tight. You get 4 for the price of 1 and increase your odds. Paying for high prices could be like Semin in Carolina..So far it's not looking great. Risky but you either develop a top notch scorer are you pay for one. We do better paying or trading for them for them. Kariya and Sully and Arnott and Dumont.
