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.
