I wonder how long before we can put this "the only way to win in today's game is to draft and develop" argument to bed. Jason Garrison, Ben Bishop, Brendan Morrow, Anton Stralman, Matt Carle, Brian Boyle, Ryan Callahan, and Valtteri Filppula are all pretty significant contributors to this team and were drafted and developed elsewhere. Same is true of both teams in the Stanley Cup last year as well. Free agency and trades can add significantly to your team's success.
There is NO accountability for the refs. Bettman has them protected regardless of their conduct. If anyone pulled s*** like that at their day job they would be talking to the boss about their incompetence. These guys will just move on to the next game.
