As if someone named Marian Hossa never wore a tiny flightless black bird on his chest. As if Fedetenko was nobody. As if Guerin is a hack.
People's memories seem to only go back about a season and a half.
Don't forget, though, that Hossa walked, Fedotenko was scratched for most of the playoffs last year, Guerin's retired, and Ponikarovsky was a huge bust for them.
Those are moves that a Stanley Cup contender can make to put them over the top, but it's poor asset management otherwise.
