Not great examples.
I'm sorry, I meant Shanahan from St. Louis to Hartford (Carolina) FOR Pronger. St. Louis went on a steak of making the playoffs every year after that. Boston won the Cup this most recent year post-Thornton. Point being, it didn't put either team into a tailspin and the sky didn't fall.
