Take those away and I don't see what separates them from a handful of other inconsistently successful teams.

Just playing devil's advocate. I don't know how we all know Nill is better than MacTavish off hand.
This.
Those guys have lived off the avails of getting insanely lucky in the draft a long long time ago.
