It's that we gave them away for nothing
How far are we going back now? I agree I was just as angry as you when Streit, Koivu, Souray, Grabovski etc were allowed to leave for sweet **** all because for one reason or another those were bad moves. But I can't bring myself to be angry about losing Lapierre, Lats, D'agostini or SKost because teams all over the league ditch players like them every year.

There comes a point where you just have to move on and since gainey/gauthier is gone now is a pretty good time.

Player A is traded.
Player A gets the proper development before jumping to the NHL, with no pressure from media or fans.
Player A jumps to the NHL after a year or two.
Player A succeeds.
Media + fans = Our management sucks! FIRE EVERYONE!
If managment is listening to the fans/media for advice on how to develop players they should be fired because they are incompetent.
