Now this is starting to get ridiculous. You know that I abhor these youth for vets deals as much as the rest of you, but you can NEVER, EVER assume a Cup. If we do not make all of these deals, there is no way we can say that they would have won anyway. There were some damn good Ranger teams prior to 1994, and they didn't win the Cup.

Do Dallas fans pine over the Iginla for Nieuwendyk trade? No, because anytime you acquire a player that was instrumental in a Cup victory, the cost is worth it. Guys like Noonan, Matteau, Tikkanen, etc. were instrumental in 1994.
