Right, because the current "meccas of hockey" Toronto and Montreal are the real envies of the league.
With our history and what this team has done facing a much harsher reality, there is no reason why we can't.
New Jersey and Detroit have the best GMs in the business, by far. They have players who have won and know how to win, they have coaches who have been around a long time and have implemented winning systems that have become nearly synonymous with either team over the past few years. They are among the best drafting teams in the league and have the luxury of being able to allow their prospects to spend time on their AHL teams learning the system.
They are the class of the league, and their are
teams all trying to be like Detroit or New Jersey. Expecting Ottawa to perform at that standard is unreasonable.
That said, Ottawa made the play-offs 11 seasons in a row, and we often finished at or near the top of our Conference every year. To put it bluntly, we were
by being able to watch such a great team for many years. We're not New Jersey or Detroit, we won't stay great forever while being forced to draft late every year, especially if we draft as poorly as Muckler did in his tenor.
