The list of the players performing better after leaving seems extraordinarily long by comparison...
I think largely this speaks to the team not being able to acquire many players that are in the prime of their career. Other than Stoll, Richards, and Williams, I'm at a loss. Stoll's 68 point season was an obvious fluke and until this season he had replicated his Edmonton production. Williams was fairly close to a nice Carolina type season, but he got hurt, so I'd say he's a no. Richards will probably be up there again.

They have traded away guys too soon and that's obvious as well. Smyth, I don't think I'd put in that category. If he played anything like he did last season we would all be depressed. But producing again isn't surprising given that playing in LA has done that to people.
