Not really. We barely even made the playoffs that year. The cinderella run was more fluke than by design.

Edmonton was a pariah for years after that. Still is really. We cant attract good veteran players. They invoke their nmc's and ntc's. That is why Mr six rings decided to ride the suck for picks after the Heatley debacle and the resulting season of crap.
