Not to mention not mentioning the Kovalchuk deal. Or Luongo.
You are missing the point. The point was that these teams didn't die off after the trade. Not all was lost. The sky didn't fall after. They were still competitive relatively quickly after. It wasn't like after trading their best player that they were never competitive again for 5-10 years.
