If they had been able to draft talent to build around, this would have been an elite team. A couple elite players supplemented by guys like Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov, Hagelin, etc.
Sather can't help himself. He loves to make the big splash. How many awful FA signings has he made? How many terrible trades? Now we're locked into a mammoth deal for Lundqvist, a huge deal for Nash, and he's bumbled his way into an excuse to "go for it" every year even though the team is poorly built; It doesn't compete, lacks physicality, and lacks skill.
What a joke.
True but that's a cup we could've stolen if Hank played like himself in game 5 of the ECF. The stars were aligned for us. Kings were an eight seed. We would've had home ice. I think that's one hank wishes he had back. Could've been vezina and the cup on top of the gold he won.
