Right but this doesn't answer my question. How did it upset our offensive chemistry when we had very little anyway and how did it cause Richards and Gabs to forget how to play hockey? Did it kill our puck possession last year or something? How many fewer goals did we score last season compared to the average under Torts? Team looked pretty much the same offensively and defensively last year imo. But we had two superstars produce nothing and take up top 6 spots and PP time. What happened to them was independent of the trade and no one seems to have any evidence to the contrary. If they do I'd be happy to listen. Does Nash carry an aura of disruption helmet equipped that makes all superstars forget how to play so he can look good? -5 to team charisma?

I don't disagree. It is what I previously thought though. It's been a small sample size but you are right about this aspect. I do think the all time atrocious PP and his inability to fix it was a great catalyst for his sudden firing. Perhaps the horses in TB carried him PP wise.

We were almost unanimously mistaken to think it was smart to let Prust go for that money. He's the type of guy we begged for and were glad to let him go over what 2 million over 4 years?
