Maybe you're right. But I do remember Oates at some point saying something on the order of, "We get worse, and worse every year. Trade me and get some talent and youth in your organization".

But, I just don't remember what came first. However, w/ the exception of Bourque, it's hard to argue w/ what Oates was saying. We sucked.
That was a rough year. The team was still decent but they gutted them, which led to Joe Thornton. Those were dark days.
