In hindsight, Neil shouldve tried to trade up to get the Sedins. Wow, can't believe thats gonna be 10 years next June.

In 1999 our defense was really mediocre, got really bad when Beuk was cheapshotted and never played again.
true that deal would have been like dealing for kovalchuk and giving up Dubi, Montoya(if we still had him), dawes and a 1st rounder....tough deal to swallow
