This is great, really well said. I think we just over look that. There is no magic formula other than to put together a bunch of good hockey players and hope you get some luck. That is really about it. Having a exact prototypical player at every position is impossible and never achieved. IF we finally get the Number 1 D man and that big C. It doesn't mean we will win. We will always have holes, it comes down to the chemistry, skill and luck of the players we have.
