I mean really...
There are a lot of factors involved. Hindsight's fantastic, but the Gonchar signing at the time was an excellent move, the fact that he's playing like he is is shocking, hard to see that coming. Hard to take the time to dissect it on a trade by tradem signing by signing basis, but Murray did what he had to do with Heatley, the team looked charged after that, made the POs in 5th, then hit a brick wall this year. Hard to see any of that coming, really hard.
