They've waited 8 years without the playoffs to finally have a stockpile of good players. Do you really think Montréal could go like that without a riot ?

Would have, could have and should have mean nothing. We could have traded Roy before he played that infamous game in Detroit and got a large, large return.

See, that's stupid and so is speculating about the past.
Aside from this last off season i agree. Teams let go players. Teams rarely if ever let go one of their top defenseman and 3 top forwards and get nothing in return in ONE offseason.

It either took too long for him to realize his team wasn't good enough or was too blind or loyal to see it until the off season. Either way, this off season was very poor asset management.
