They grow a fantastic defense and goaltending so they're in the hunt every year, but they've never developed any kind of offensive talent and haven't been successful at parlaying their defensive depth to fill that hole. This deal is a case in point - they deal from strength but get weaker and don't add anything useful for the offense.

Can't win in the playoffs with a 2nd line and three 4th lines, no matter how good your D and goalie are.
