I searched Phoenix and was floored to find one result.
They supposedly got killed trading Wolski for Roszival. Roszival ended last season on the top pairing. They picked up Antoine Vermette for picks during his worst season in Columbus, and he led the team in playoff goals. Korpikoski turned into a great defensive forward. Vrbata found his game again. Klesla stayed relatively healthy. Gordon turned into a solid third liner after a decidedly meh career in Washington. Ray Whitney was an absurd value. And don't even get me started about Mike Smith.
They've also been more forthcoming about their use of advanced statistics (Gordon racked up QoC numbers with the Caps despite being used sparsely, for example) than any team I can think of.
