I think one of the most dangerous things a GM can do is overestimate where his team is. DR did it with the Wild. Calgary is constantly doing it. And Poile with Nashville, both last season and back when they traded for Forsberg.

When you think you are closer to a Cup than you are, you start spending future assets to bulk up your NHL team, but there is only so much room on that roster, and there is diminishing returns when it comes to bringing in those middle talent vets.
