Completely illogical approach to roster construction here.
I blame that on being just competitive enough to rarely ever land in the top 5, even during the dark ages. That and our draft record wasn't the best before the lockout. Cherepanov's death really set us back and continues to this day. Also they should have done the fire sale earlier.
