Those 3 guys have to believe, right now, is the best chance of their lives to win it all. That's going to pay dividends when games get tough.
And were those weakness actually fixed? Who knows. But the fact remains trying to put your chances on a Cup in the hands of two main pieces who haven't even been in the playoffs in years and a slow footed defenseman who is, on an actual playoff team with even a hint of respectable depth, a seven, I question just how much more these trades will accomplish.

I truly hope we are not trying to compare two players in their prime to two players in their 30's with one closer to 40 then 30.
