If you commit to Derek Stepan as the #1c next season, you're comitting to another year of fighting tooth and nail for a playoff spot, you're committing to wasting a year of Lundqvist, and - worst of all - you're committing to a lottery ticket. And this is coming from someone who really likes Stepan's game.

I just dont know what it is...is the fanbase so scarred from overpaying guys that didnt deserve it that they dont see a legitimate talent when one becomes available via free agency? Because Brad Richards is just that - a guy that would be worth the investment, for once.

Or is it that theyve fallen so far in love with this prospect base, that they legitimately think these guys can get the job done themselves at some point down the road?

One or both of these lines of thinking will lead to a consistent stream of mediocrity - fighting for a playoff spot every year where more than half the teams make the postseason
