Rivet was acquired at the trading deadline

This is with Brad Stuart(#1 in 1998) being traded to Boston in the Thornton trade,Jeff Jillson(#1 in 99) traded to Boston(again)in a three way deal bwtn SJ,Boston and Montreal for McLaren and lost Mike Rathje(#1 in 92) in free agency
Or the Islanders in '96: McCabe, Kasparitis, Pilon, Lachance and Berard were all drafted (not Berard technically, but practically) and developed by the Isles, and Kenny Jonsson was traded for at the age of 21.

It all has to do with talent.
