Right, and not everybody stayed. Also, you're talking about the last Dynasty. Look at a guy like Hossa, he signed a one year deal there at a cheaper price because he wanted to play on a team that could win the cup. If they were a mediocre-bad team, that structure wouldn't have worked.
Let's not forget, Lidstrom was their Captain, best player. In Montreal, we want to make our best player accept less cash apparently. It's working upside down.
