Pittsburgh's personnel moves over the last five years are really hard to understand.
Once they made two consecutive Stanley Cups, they started chasing that hard. The old GM would trade away first rounders at the deadline almost every season. With money wrapped up in Fleury, Crosby, and Malkin, they prioritized supplementing their lines over defensive depth. Losing Jordan Staal hurt a lot, too. His line was crucial during the cup runs.
