That's not considering what players of his ilk contribute, but i like kovy so i won't go there.
There weren't that many costs. A bunch of players that were easily replaced and a couple picks, not that big of a deal for a franchise player.
The fact that he elevated this team to being 2 wins away from a cup in such a short span is amazing. Also considering the fact that the team was built around Goaltending prior to him and it would have just culminated in a bunch of 1st/2nd round exits (or not making the playoffs at all) means that he's drastically changed the franchise forever.
