Well they still went to the Cup Finals two years ago.

Not really his fault that Kovalchuk went to the KHL although it was a potential risk. I think a big part of the issue now is that the team doesn't draft as well anymore. Also Lou is older now and doesn't seem as invested as he used to, and New Jersey is not a draw for free agents so he has to overpay.

Even so they've still got a roster that could make the playoffs next year.
