HA...ok. That was SOOOOO long ago that it predates the current CBA.
Dallas has not rebuilt since going to Dallas. Colorado has not rebuilt since being in Quebec City. Detroit hasn't rebuilt in a REAL long time.
When was the last time the Devils broke it down to the foundation and started over and missed the playoffs more than one year?

Detroit got Yzerman how long ago? he is 40 isnt he? Sakic and Forsberg were acquired by Quebec. Modano played in Minnesota, too.

You make my point for me. Since the last CBA with more free agency and movement of players, good teams don't rebuild. they evolve. what was the last cup team to miss the playoffs two years in a row at any point after winning the cup?
i think its montreal...thats a LONG TIME AGO.
