Carter traded for Jagr.

And all those years later, the signing of S&K worked out beautifully.

Just a thought I just had that I thought was interesting.
Smith was killed for those signing because he had just let Messier walk and didn't get Sakic.

And then he decided that the Rangers would just become a defense-first team without having the players to play that kind of game.
