I think we were a very deep team that year scoring wise. But there is also a salary cap and in this new cap world every team is going to be incomplete at some level or there are things they are weak at comparatively.
I agree that we didn't have the perfect pieces but we did have great pieces and we were a dominant team that would have steamrolled pretty much everyone in our path had we solved Halak.
Our team in 92 was quite dominant too (Bowman even said so after they beat us and it was COMMON knowledge the no one could have stopped us that year had we gotten past the Pens) and we fell out in the 1st round. I didn't blame Poile for that at the time. Not ALWAYS the GMs fault. Sometimes you can do a almost everything perfectly and still get denied.
But that 09-10 was just 1 year. There is PLENTY to blame McPhee for outside of that I agree.
