but moreover, every team he was traded from in his 40+ goal prime did better in the playoffs almost immediately after he left.

he only made it out of the first round once in his six seasons with the caps. year after he left, they went to the conference finals for the first time in franchise history.

year after he leaves minnesota, they make it to the finals.

the year the rangers trade him to toronto, they win the cup.

the postseason optics are not good for him.
