Hind sight is 20/20.

If only we had just KEPT some of our budding young studs. Something this organization never understood.

Kovalev, Savard, Amonte, Weight.

And, 3 of them are still playing in the league. And doing well.
You missed the biggest one of all. Zubov!! Why in the world did we let him go??? A few other names that come to mind are Domi, Norstrom, Mike Ridley, Knuble, and even Malholtra isn't too bad a player and is currently with the Jackets I believe.

It could be worse I think. We could've gave up too early on Luongo, not picked up and signed Spezza, or kept Jokkinen, and traded Chara and Tim Connelly.

I know what you're saying. The Devils are the one team that doesn't give up on young talent. And we must of had some bad scouting to draft Lundmark and Brendyl in the first round.
