Can't argue with the end results, but it's my belief that it was going to happen with the team prior to the deadline.
we lost to both Calgary and Detroit at home. So, there was a fear that we could not handle the better teams from the west. The Rangers were also 2-2 against Pittsburgh that year. Keenan and Smith were worried that they had a team built for the regular season and not the POs. Also, if I remember correctly, the Rangers played the Devils after all the trades were made and, with the new lineup intact, beat them something 6-0. The playoffs would be a completely different animal.
