yeah I've heard this argument , three times in fact.

1) Ribeiro
2) Grabovski
3) Kostitsyn

Wonder if there's ever been another team in history that traded away 3 players for zilch and had those players lead their new team in scoring (and mysteriously and suddenly drop the PROBLEM label that supposedly led to their trade).

I am not, but if I was in left field you couldn't see me from your alternate universe.

Where on the roster is there anything close to the 28+28=56 resulting from that trade. Answer: there is zilch. nada. nothing.
