They were smoked by Pittsburgh back to back years (with 17 and 18 doing very little), then lucked out into favorable matchups throughout the 2010 postseason (avoiding Washington and Pittsburgh) and got to the Finals. Then, after a strong first half, the team, under the leadership of Richards, tanked and got embarassed in the playoffs (in which both Carter and Richards were nowhere to be found).
Seriously, people act as though we lost Gretzky and Messier this offseason. Neither Richards or Carter deserve the cred they get.
On paper we are now a worse team.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
