He still left the team. He is pretty much useless as an asset if he is not playing in the NHL.

and even if you count Weber or Suter, that's 2 in about 12 years... in that time span (since they're in the league) we probably wasted a full team, -> and one of the players we gave away is on their 1st line
By my count (including Radulov) that is 5.

-Timonen
-Hartnell
-Radulov
-Hamhuis
-Weber/Suter

That is just the marquee players they have lost, this list could easily be further extended. And those players are arguably the top players that have ever played for the franchise (Sullivan/Erat could be argued).

they keep the coach and management, they develop their own players and keep them for the most part, they have their own game plan (they dont adjust from game to game, they play THEIR way)...
Great, and it hasn't won them anything. So what's so great about it?
