some interesting writings from wiki http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%AD%99%E7%AD%96
《三国志》记载曹操的谋士郭嘉曾说过：“策新并江东，所诛皆英豪雄杰，能得人死力者也。然策轻而无备，虽有 百万之众，无异于独行中原也。若刺客伏起，一人之敌耳。以吾观之，必死于匹夫之手”。后果然于200年4月 ，在外出狩猎时被旧仇許貢的部下行刺而死。孫權稱帝後，追謚為“長沙桓王”。孫策死前，召孫權來病榻前。說 ：「任用江東人才，在軍陣之間與天下群雄一爭雌雄，卿不如我﹔但拔擢賢能，使他們各盡心力，保全江東，我不如卿」

In historical records (San Guo Zhi,) Cao Cao's strategist Guo Jia said ''Sun Ce established Jiang Dong, employs the service of intelligent and brave talents, and make them loyal servants who would die for his cause. Sun Ce is careless despite having many talents around him, and likes to wander around the wilderness alone (for hunting.) Should he meet with assasination, all it takes is 1 man. In my view, he will die in the hands of average man (assassin) '' Guo Jia's prediction came true when Sun Ce was critically injured under the hands of his arch rival Xu Gong's follower (unnamed follower) during April of 200 when on a hunting trip, and subsequently died from the injury. After Sun Quan self-proclaimed as Emperor of Wu, he dedicated a posthumous title of ''King Huan of Changsha'' to his brother Sun Ce. Before Sun Ce died, he summoned Sun Quan before his deathbed, and told him ''In the use of talents, and to compete with the other heroes in military strategies, you're not my equal. In fulfilling the potential of talents and safeguarding the survival of Jiang Dong, I'm not your equal.''

I feel that it was guanyu who causes the downfall of 蜀. He lost 荆州 and in trying to revenge his brother's death, liu bei suffered devastating lost.
There was a old serial on Zhuge Liang, and the start it always narrate this
Anyone still remembers?
if 姜维 was given unconditional support for the northern campaigns like how 刘备 trusted 诸葛亮, history might have been different. although 吴 took 荆州 , like what 孙策 said about 孙权, 孙权 was not capable as a military strategist, 孙权 will not risk 江东 and start a campaign against 蜀 as it'll be too much beyond his comfort zone.
