Konowalchuk was a good 3rd liner but nobody you'd call a big part of a great team or anything. You really saw Bondra, Gonchar, Johansson, and Kolzig as the core of a powerhouse?

Come on man that team had a couple very nice parts and a bunch of old guys. You act like that team was primed for years to greatness and McPhee screwed it up. The only thing he screwed up with respect to that team was not finding the fountain of youth.
