You do have to commit and go for a cup run, I agree. I'm not saying don't get vinny. I'm just saying it's an overpayment big time. Like i said, plek, higgins, subban, 1st round pick and 2nd round pick...is like...alright...fine. Adding gorges and another 1st is way too much.

Besides, you talk about going for it now, we all want to win, but tell me, how are we gonna win when we're looking to improve our D and instead lose another top 4 d-man?
Vinny for 10 years or Plek+Gorges+Higgins+2 last first round picks. Which will win you more games and have a better chance to win a cup?

NHL hockey is a game of stars. That's why teams with superstars win the cup every year. Not the deepest team, but the team with best top line pairing and the best top two lines and the best goalie.
