Both players were impact and great support that contributed to Stanley Cups. The posters that claim "where do we get these guys" or "these guys don't grow on trees" are short sighted. Good managers find players other then trading or drafting.
To be fair, Lennart Petrell is a perfect example of that.
Three guys were brought in and he has succeeded. Tyrvainen and Tulupov were examples of the ones that fall through the cracks. When you expect a GM to find diamonds in the rough through drafting and free agent signing, it's going to take time and more often than not, you're going to witness failure.
