The OP has a point. Quebec traded Sundin in 1994 and Nolan in 1995 and Thibeault in 1996 -- there were zero reasons to trade two former 1st overall picks who were under 25 and playing like all stars. Thibeault was one of the better young goalies in hockey after Brodeur.
Those trades helped make the Avs Cup Champions. Chances are they would have won Cups anyway with Sundin and Nolan rather than Ozolinsh and Clark (who became Lemieux), but the boldness of those trades should not be overlooked.
