Toronto won't be a playoff team next year either, in fact they may be worse than this year with an upgrade on GA but virtually no offense to speak of other than Kessel up front.
You're definitaly right except that I'd also add Nazim Kadri as a potential 20 - 30 goal scorer for Toronto next season but this might be a biased opinion because i'm really high on the kid and hoped the Habs could have drafted him.
I was just trying to use a recent example that post Salarie cap era GM's have to work alot harder at getting talented players at a rebate, this is a big problem in Montreal because it seems like every player has to be overpaid to come here but Bob needs to start working on trying to fit more skilled players under the cap. Anywayz as much as it frustrates me the way Bob Gainey does business sometimes - In Bob I Trust
