One thing that really popped out at me in this is how incredibly bad Mike Milbury's legacy in New York was - for this series of events between draft day 2000 and draft day 2001.

- Trades Luongo and Olli Jokinen for Mark Parrish and Oleg Kvasha
- Drafts 2x in the top 5 - picks DiPietro and Raffi Torres
- Trades 2nd overall (Spezza) & Chara for Yashin (who is still on their cap hit for 4.8M this year and 2.2M for 4 more years)

Three moves in quick succession that destroyed a franchise.
