Our guys are still young, and it takes time to build a winning culture. Guys like Zajac and Gionta developed within a winning NJ system that IS better than ours, but that doesn't mean the Habs will suck forever. Our prospects are great, and they haven't been ruined yet. You just have to be patient. It takes a long time to clean up a big mess like the one Houle (or Corey) caused.

Our prospects are developing well, but they're not going to spit out Zajac or Parise-type performances. They'll take longer than that. The next wave of prospects - after the current wave - will develop quicker. Look at San Jose. They've been good for a while, but they haven't sniffed the Cup yet, and it's taken them until this year to have their prospects such as Vlasic and Setoguchi blossom.
