I assume you are referring to the team that was lead offensively by Walker, Sullivan, Dumont, Arnott, Kariya, and a hobbled Forsberg. One interesting fact about Walker, Sullivan, Dumont, Arnott, and Kariya-- all were deemed expendable by their former teams.
So, I guess you could say we had talent other teams could only dream of... But in actuality, it was talent that other teams let walk away. All of the previously mentioned players either had their career year under Trotz, or resurrected their career under Trotz.
But back to the topic, I think this team is in the bottom 10 of overall talent. Bottom 5 offensive talent. Middle of the road defensive corps (bottom 4 defensemen bring our average down). Rinne-- goaltenders are volatile, so we'll just have to wait and see. Our hope is in him.
