It's funny how everyone forgets that LA sucked for many years and stockpiled picks and prospects. Then let them grow...and grow. And then there were even rumours of DL getting fired because he would not pull the trigger or could not(Kovalchuk). Why is philly not not allowed to do te same thing. Also...in Philly's 1st year after the trade they had 106 points and made it to the final 8 all while getting younger. Maybe we should see if this year is just an anomoly and see how the 20-24 year old develop.
