At the same time, who would have thought it was going to be Krejci and Marchand leading the way? The expectation was that Kaberle would put them over the top and, as Zil said, he was pretty much a non factor.
I don't disagree with the discussion at hand, but the '09/'10 Bruins could have dealt a player like Marchand as the 6th seed to address some weaknesses. Local media around here was going crazy that they didn't.
If the heart of this article is that the "window" will be open for a while, then it's, at very least, reason to be selective and careful about who you're dealing.
