I don't remember anyone being that upset Goc, Sullivan, and Ward walked.
I was upset about losing Goc and did post about this at the time. From the perspective of cost to production, I thought he was pretty good and worth the money Fla paid him. I think he has more offensive talent than both Legwand and Fisher. He made every line he was ever put on seem to work better. I was ok with the loss of Sullivan simply because i didn't think his skill set at this point in his career was worth the cash and fit well with the style we were trying to develop, and I liked Ward but I thought he got overpaid by Washington.
