Gagne was a salary dump, most teams with cap room didn't have the budget to take him and those with the budget didn't have the cap room. He was a decent addition but didn't play up to his salary/cap hit.
Kubina was an ok addition...3.8 mil for 23 points and average defense is hadrdly a great signing...6'4" version of Spacek.
Brewer was a solid addition but they paid more for him thgan we paid for Wisniewski.
The TB success is mostly related to guys that were there before Boucher/Yzerman arrived...St.Louis Stamkos Lecavalier etc
Playing Pittsburgh minus Crosby and Malkin in round 1 instead of Boston also helped their "run".
