Don't want "500 word essays" [editorial note: your post was longer than mine], fine.
Answer me this: What have the Devs won since losing Stevens? What have they won since losing Nieds? What have they won since losing Rafalski?
You act as if they've kept on being a force of nature without those guys?
They've been a very strong regular season team because they're consistent over the 82 game schedule, get good goaltending, have a team philosophy, and just putter along and do their thing. Great. But that ain't what championships are made of.
They have won 2 playoff series since '02-'03. 2. 16-26 in the playoffs.
If they've been adjusting to the loss of those guys, then they need to try something else.
