For the last couple days I was thinking about making a post about a lineup of all the NYR free agent failures then today I decided to go for it after reading John's post on Frolov and saying he's definitely apart of the NYR Free Agent busts. So this is what I came up w/ instead of doing schoolwork for finals & the end of semester. Had a couple blanks come up and had to do some research for some other busts (Scott Fraser? WTF?) but this what I've got for now w/ a couple blank spots. Feel free to comment, add a bust, defend a player, and share in the depressing mood that remembering these signings put me in.
Head Coach: Brian Trottier
Valeri Kamensky----Holik----Theo Fleury
Alex Frolov----Scott Gomez----Ales Kotalik
Donald Brashear---???---Scott Fraser
Darius Kaspairatis --- Wade Redden
Vladimir Malakhov --- Stephane Quintal
G: Kevin Weekes

Two players that I was hesitant about including were Fleury & Rozsival. Rozy has played much better recently but I still consider it a bad signing and could not think of another bad D-man signing, feel free to replace him w/ someone else. I was very young when Theo was here and I liked watching him play, he didn't live up to expectations but I didn't think he was absolutely awful either in my opinion.
Couldn't think of a goalie since Dunham was traded for & I've got 3 empty forward slots...I blame it on being drained at the end of the semster once again.
Edit: Agreed w/ George's points on Cullen and removed him while adding Kotalik & Zherdev.
