This isnt Neil Smith trading away Amonte, Weight, etc for veterans
I think the above is the lesson of what happens when you trade away your top prospects. Yeah, they won the cup (thank god), so Smith got lucky, but there's no Mark Messier on this team.

To quote Top Gun:

"The encounter was a victory, but I think we've shown it as an example of what NOT to do."
