Transactions that shaped Real Salt Lake

Scott Garlick's abrupt retirement in the 2007 preseason was one of the best things that ever happened to the Real Salt Lake franchise.

I was looking through the Deseret News archives, and I stumbled upon this list of 14 key transactions that shaped Real Salt Lake through the years. I put this together in the build-up to the Champions League final last April, and I thought I’d share it again, because it’s still very relevant heading into the 2012 season.

In hindsight, I might change the order of importance on some of these, but for the most part all the key transactions are there.
