In all seriousness, I didn't realize that they've been bad in the post-expansion era. They have more Stanley Cups than conference championships. Well, that doesn't really sound bad but it really means they haven't won the Cup in the expansion era.
Toronto is also the only team that hasn't been in the playoffs post-lockout.
Carlyle should look at the Kings current roster and the Ducks 2007 roster, then look at his current roster.
Maybe Burke will overpay for Penner.
Burke was the wrong choice for Toronto. They have all the money in the world and they hire a GM that won't spend it. He refused to give out long term deals that are front loaded.
At least dean was willing to try with Hossa, Kovalchuk and Richards. And he traded for Richards and Carter, both who have cap-friendly, front-loaded deals.
