That's a great post on the Russian Five and McDavid. If one thinks of for example Gretzky, he clearly made near superstars of any players playing with him. McDavid's linemates often can't keep up with him, and he can't help them enough. If he can fix that, we'll see some great hockey from Edmonton again.

Is it the "Red Army" one, where you see Gretzky whining "we can't compete, it's too difficult" in the second intermission when the NHL team was losing 8-1 ?

 

I remember that quote from Scotty Bowman about them: "I don't know what you're doing and how you're doing it, but just keep on doing it".

Well, things aren't as simple as what I am about to post, but, with salaries that high, it doesn't leave as much room for a consistent, quality supporting cast, and therefore, generally, not as complete a team is iced, thus, greater chance to be eliminated earlier, while better salary balanced, better supported teams continue on.
