Yep, that team without a doubt is the exception, not the rule. Like always, here in NY somehow the mentality that we should shoot for the exception because hockey is different here really sounds familiar, some would say quite old and dated.

Sidenote, Neil Smith made some trades with Centers that led to getting Messier in the first place. For many years we were in no shape to make trades with that kind of impact cause we drafted poorly, traded our picks, and gutted the system of anyone that was worth a damn, and guess what, that was all to 'win now'.
