The trade of defenders Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and Patrick Ianni saw the departure of two Sounders who had been with the team since the very beginning of the MLS era, starting with the inaugural game against the New York Red Bulls.

The list has dwindled slowly over the years.

Now only three remain, plus the whole front office and coaching staff:

Osvaldo Alonso (acquired from Charleston on Jan. 26, 2009)
Brad Evans (acquired via expansion draft on Nov. 26, 2008)
Zach Scott (signed on March 16, 2009)

As some disclaimers, defender Leo Gonzalez was with the team in 2009 but didn’t join until midway through the season. Lamar Neagle was also around that year, but he wasn’t with the Sounders in 2010 and 2012.

Any thoughts?
