    Isles wasted luongo and Olli Jokinen in a trade for mark parrish and Oleg Kvasha

    Definitely a lot different understanding of “wasted” though

    Knocking on the wood, why not, but the roster is a symptom, the org is where you'll find the cause. You might need more than a new GM. (Who knows.)

    He is not terrible. I am saying that people acting like all of his team-mates are AHL level players at best. For instance, go check with whom Ovi played during his early years and who was on that defense outside of Mike Green

    mcDavid would seem pretty unique in terms of the disparity between his skill and his team's success, but he's still plenty young, give it time.

    Just because you didn't win a cup doesn't mean your talent was wasted- like, ya, that's the ultimate goal, but regularly making playoffs is success, just not the degree of success you'd like.

    HFOil hate everyone not named McDavid, that’s a pretty bad bar to use.

    Nurse isn’t great, but he’s a damn good young dman who has had a good season. He’s been our #1 dman taking tough matchups and playing insane minutes. He’s in over his head, but his progress this year has been nice to see.

    Enough of the McDavid bad situation threads already.
    Altering the wording doesn't alter the painfully tired subject.

    If we're talking current players then Erik Karlsson.

    Two Norris trophies, the best defenseman in the league, and yet only made it past the first round twice in his career thanks to being stuck on mediocre Sens' teams.

    Montreal could have arguably been a cup contender with some more scoring help. Lost a lot of 2-1 games
