Not every single prospect you have is going to stay with the club, there has to be a hierarchy of experience and talent they must break into to make an impact. You draft well, you have a good team, you are going to lose certain young players it is just how it works.
And yes, I would much rather have Gomez than Sergei, every single day of the year.
Do you ever stop posting about Gomez even when this has nothing to do with him?
I swear some of you would rather have a forward group of young players, so you dont have to overpay or some crap, why dont you take a look at teams like st louis, colorado, edmonton, florida and see if they are effective at this strategy.
So except Plekanec, Pacioretty is the only forward we develop properly and kept in the last 5-7 years? That's how a good team competes? Since AK is a piece of **** that is on his way out right?
A good team is build with good drafting and be able to develop their talent.
So you use bottom ranked team to make your point because they are rebuilding huh?
I rather take a look at Detroit, Vancouver, Philadelphia, Washington, Tampa Bay, Chicago, Dallas, Anaheim etc.. who builds their team (forwards) with the draft and development.
