Are they slightly overrated? Perhaps, as there some luck involved for any team, but given the fact that their first pick is often
no.50, it's pretty significant that they've been able to
find solid NHLers.
I agree wholeheartedly.
The only measuring stick I give a damn about is Stanley Cups.
Didn't the Wings trade Mathias to get Bertuzzi?
