Ah...so what big trade deadline move for an impending UFA did Tampa make last season? Or the Devils in 02-03? Or the Wings in 01-02...that put these teams over the top and made the get out of that "stuck in that good...but never good enough mould"?
but i was referring to more of how now-a-days teams won't be able to stockpile the talent like previous.
maybe that wont take effect for a couple more years...
