Easy answer, hf gm'ing places "assets" above winning. I guess Pittsburgh should give away Letang next year if he's not signed rather than attempt to win, with him
The Penguins already traded away a star that they knew they would be unable to sign----->Exibit A: Jordan Staal.

I like Sutter, but lets be honest, he's not Jordan Staal. The other pieces were a pick and a prospect. Now, the Pens were listed as the favorite to win the cup at the time of the trade, and they traded away a fan favorite who was their best penalty killer, best defensive forward, and also capable of scoring 25+ goals a year. I think if you now asked Poile or Lam if they would do things differently knowing what they know now, I'm sure they make a different decision.
