Sure - 2 to 3 years additional experience for Nagy, Langkow, Johnson, Kolanos, Taffe, Mara, Vaanaanen, Tanabe, Kynazev, Gratton, Spiller, Eager, Ference, Doan, LeNeveu, Hrdina, Podlesak, Branko, McLeod, & Sjostrom. Also, revenue from the new building (Maybe we'll pluck Thornton from the Bruins when they can't afford him), Lots of 'Draper' picks on the way, and the continued blessing of being associated with that Gretzky guy.

Like I've said a million times before, I'm not gonna judge this team based on this years performance (which IMO is extremely short-sighted), but on how this team has been assembled for the future. NOBODY, takes a franchise which was in as bad shape as this one was & turns them into a Cup contender over night.

I'd much rather model this franchise after Ottawa than the Rangers.
