Minus a top-6 winger for Sid? That's like saying, "hey, you're missing the engine but your Ferrari sure looks good."

We're built around Fleury. We have drafted defenseman after defenseman. We keep 8 D. We say we want 10 NHL-caliber D every year. When Fleury melted down, we spent more money for a better backup.

If we truly were built around Sid and Geno, we would be forward-heavy. We would never accept not having a 40-goal man on either player's line. We would always have all the elements of a killer power play at all times.

Most of all, we would not be playing a grinding game with two of the most exquisite hockey players on the planet. That right there is the definition of dumb.
