That's precisely why you don't give up futures unless you're in the top 3 or 4 in the conversation for the Cup. That season was a complete mirage, the team had no depth and made a fluky regular season run. Penguins and Bruins have proven SC winning depth, they are now going toe to toe for the east this year.

We will have our year, but possibly not until Bruins and Pens hit a zenith and weight themselves down with contracts like Tampa. A couple of years away, meanwhile MB needs to keep building.
