It's embarrassing that the three forwards won the Stanley Cup and the goalie won the Vezina immediately after we traded them. Meanwhile, we are in the basement of the league, bought out the prized free agent acquisition we signed with the money we freed up from the deals, fired our coach, and forced a young star into the captaincy before he was ready. I hate this team right now.
I can't think of another team in NHL history that gutted their team after making it 2 wins within a cup and being the best team in the league for 3/4 the next season before getting hit by injuries. That disappointing season was only that because of how utterly dominant they looked the first half of that year.
