if you wanted to make the playoffs and do anything in them, not so much.

semin had 10pts in the caps final 9 games to get them in the playoffs.
he scored goals in 3 straight games in the boston series including the one goal wins of games 4 and 5.

wideman was dale's favorite defenseman.

so, if you want to criticize mcphee for not selling because making the playoffs was a waste of time, then fine. dont delude yourself that trading those players wouldnt have changed anything.
