Well that is sort of my point....we got him for the near term to HELP bring a cup. Some say that even if they fail in that goal it will be worth it. My contention is that it's not that clear cut....

We got Lindros for the same reasons...meanwhile Forsberg helped bring home the bacon ultimately for his team...
