Heika has a nice article about Recchi.

Jagr wasn't the only recruit by Recchi this summer. He played a big role in signing Ray Whitney (also former teammate he won a Stanley Cup with).

On ice, the team has definitely change since Gaglardi signed on, but the biggest changes are in hockey operations. More importantly, those changes seem to be smart hires and guys with winning pedigrees. It really was amazing when they were introducing everyone and listing all those Stanley Cups between Gainey, Recchi, and Nieuwendyk. You throw in Les Jackson as a top end talent evaluator of the draft, and you really do have an all-star hockey operations department.
