Yep.

Because of where I work, I am privy to certain events. I got a chance to attend a luncheon with Dave Maloney. Off the record, he said that the loss of Dubinksy, took lots of the identity out of the room. As did Prust not coming back. He further compared it to when he went to the finals and then in a way to improve the team, much of that core was traded away.
Agreed 100%

The thing is, none of us saw it.
I didn't.
I thought they got the gamebreaker they needed.
The media bought it too....because we didn't give up Kreider or Del Zotto (more high ceiling players).

When the Pens traded for Hossa everybody thought the loss Colby Armstrong was huge, but nobody really foresaw the loss of Dubi, PAA, Prust.

Shame on us, on me, and most of all, Sather, a grinder who should known better.
