Decided to do a rebuild with Columbus, I thought "oh they're crap anyway I don't need to trade away a load of people" and the only moves I made were trading away Aucoin for a 2nd, and I signed Nik Zherdev from free agents just for the lulz. Ended up making the playoffs with 7th seed

Montreal somehow won the cup

In the draft I ended up with:
#16 overall - Morgan Klimchuk (C) 4* gold potential, 55 overall
#45 overall - Curtis Lazar (C) 3.5* gold potential, 58 overall
#46 overall - Jordan Subban (D) 3.5* gold potential, 53 overall
#76 overall - Alessio Bertaggia (LW) 3.5* gold potential, 56 overall
#106 overall - Connor Honey (RW) 3.5* gold potential, 55 overall
#136 overall - Jackson Whistle (G) 3.5* gold potential, 45 overall

So without tanking I get 6 solid players there with a couple of steals in the later rounds

Midway through the 2nd season I just noticed a blockbuster trade:

To Oilers: Alex Galchenyuk, Dalton Thrower
To Habs: Ales Hemsky, Nick Schultz, Lauri Korpikoski

Montreal then went on to trade Schultz to the Kings for Tomas Hyka

At the deadline I traded a 2nd and 79 overall Tomas Kubalik for 83 overall Mats Zuccarello as I'm probably going to make the playoffs at this point.

team looks like this going into playoffs:

Umberger 84 - Anisimov 84 - Zuccarello 83
Brassard 82 - Dubinsky 83 - Foligno 81
Miller 77 - Johansen 76 - Atkinson 79
Dorsett 74 - Gillies 76 - Boll 75

Johnson 86 - Wisniewski 86
Tyutin 85 - Moore 77
Erixon 77 - Savard 76

Mason 86
Bobrovsky 82

On paper that team sucks but they ended up going 42-32-8, my division sucks so I ended up with #3 seed

Eliminated the Flames in the 1st round, then got swept by the Kings.
