JFJ traded for a good forward in Jeff O'Neill and signed quality UFA's like Lindros and Allison, but unfortunately for us the injury bug kicked in. Belfour had a terrible year as well which didn't help at all. Had a few things gone in our favour, we would have been in the playoffs. That was a playoff caliber team.
