The other problem with this team is the lack of defensemen who can pass the puck.
The Wings have three elite puck movers and two other capable movers.
We have perhaps one elite puck mover and one capable mover. Komisarek is solid, so you can count him as three if you like. Either way, we need more of these guys.
Anyway, I assume Gainey wants to keep going with the youth, but Koivu/Kovalev aren't getting any younger. I guess Gainey has a grand design in mind.
Do we have the talent? The Habs need top end players. Laps, Komi, Lats, Obyrne, Emelin, Mcdonogh, Chip will be here soon. Koivu, Kovs, Higgins, titts 1 and 2 etc are not soft. Watching the Pens it appears the making of a dynasty.
