Yeah, Yzerman did a way better job than you're giving him credit for. Gagne, Moore, Bergenheim, and Brewer didn't start the year with the Lightning, and ended up the 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th leading point getters for them in the playoffs. Basically, Yzerman added almost the entirety of their playoff secondary scoring, the importance of which is only lost on the foolish.
I think I would also add Roloson to the list.
