Well, I apologize if I inadvertently twisted the facts around, but I'm pretty sure they were a bad team at the date of the trade, even though they played a decent October/November.

The day of the trade, the Avs were 25-27-7 (a 79 point pace - which the last three years would have placed them 13th/14th in the WC - far out of the playoffs) - and having lost 10 games in a row, and having lost 20 of their last 26 games.
