Marc Savard had one good year with ATL which happened to be the year after the lockout (his last before going to Boston). That season, they had musical chairs in the goalie position. When your goalies are
Mike Dunham
Kari Lehtonen
Michael Garnett
Adam Berkhoel
Steve Shields
IDK what to really say. Three players makes not a team.

The winning thing could also be said about Hossa as well. He finally won this year, didn't he? He was on many great Ottawa teams, never did anything. They went to the finals after he left. Went to the finals twice and lost on Pitt & Det who were two teams who were quite loaded with more talented players than him. Then finally won on a Chicago team that was quite stacked.

Kovalchuk has never had a truly great team to play with from top to bottom.
