More revisionist BS.

Colorado aka Quebec parlayed Lindros into a goldmine of draft picks, prospects and players. They didn't tank 4-5 years in a row.

NJ...really go take a look. Tell me how many top 3 picks they had.

Yeah right Detroit won their cups because they tanked. Go take a look at how many top 3 picks they had.

As for those other teams. Really? One player is the difference between a SC and a tank? If that was the case how come we haven't won anything. We got Price - a franchise goalie? We got Subban. We got two not one, yet we've won nothing.

Jeeze man you usually post good comments but this one is just plain silly. It's a comment I would expect from a Gainey or a Gauthier.
