I'm suprised the Caps, Flyers, Leafs, and Sharks have not been mentioned yet. My reason for putting these guys on the list:
Terrible fiscal responsibility; underachieving group for their price (Jagr in particular); a horribly thin D corps.
Clarke seems to be the problem here--poor player management; revolving door in most important position (goal); bad trade(s), most notably 1,2,3,Oullette for a soon to be UFA Oates.
Not terrible, but not good. The team keeps getting older, with no real great young replacements for the older guys; bad trade for Nolan. Maybe the new guy will do a good job here.
Any team that goes from supposedly a Cup contender to the bottom part of the league is mis-managing its assets, or underachieving in some sort of way.
