The medical side screwed it up, they should have found the inflammation and cause of it before December. That's what caused him to miss 70 games instead of 10-12.

If Holmgren was that smart they would have had a better goalie than Leighton the year they went to the finals. With "solid" goaltending they win the cup.

You make no sense at all. You can't just put guys like Wisniewski and Spacek on LITR for no reason. Spacek even if you were to send him to AHL or Europe still has full cap hit as a 35+.

Trading Wisniewski would have been hard at the money he cost, PLUs it would be hard to fit that type of contract under the cap in October as moost teams have already spent to the cap or their internal budget, not to mention trading a guy 2 months after signing him would be hard since most big contract carry NTC's nowadays and it would make it hard dealing with future players. All around bad idea.
As pointed out, Spacek was 34 when he signed his contract. The full cap hit only applies to player who signs contract IF they are 35 or older.

Implying that the Blackhawks were not a legit team and the Flyers only got beaten because of goaltending and not because the Blackahwks were equally as good or better up front, defense and in the net.

Markov was skating on one leg in june. It was evident that somethign was wrong with his knee. He couldn't walk by himself.

The Canadiens were not at the ceiling in october, as a matter of fact they had around 6-8M$ of free cap space at that point. We're now sitting on 11M$ of free cap space. It's pretty hard to fit Wisnieski's salary somewhere in that free space, right?
