Anyway, we all agree that good teams have depth, the question is whether trading away top talent for depth players is a good idea. I can't think of any team that has done that and been successful as a result.
Quebec Nordiques trade Eric Lindros for Kerry Huffman and Steve Duchesne, goalie Ron Hextall, forwards Mike Ricci, Chris Simon, and Peter Forsberg, draft picks and cash reportedly in the neighborhood of $10 million US.
