Kind of sad to admit though that even thinking back if we managed to add Keith to that without giving anything up, this team still wouldn't have been Stanley Cup favourite. And since then this team has only gone downhill.

Just realised you might have meant adding Keith to this current team. If that's the case then yeah i agree that wouldn't be enough to even be among top-2 favourites in the East.
it's not realistic to build your team around the premise that you need multiple players in the richard/ross/vezina/norris race. having even one guy like that is a luxury. having two, is a minor miracle.

it's more appropriate to build and train your team for possession, which puts players in a position to succeed and, with a little luck, win those trophies.
