i also dont think it will take another lottery pick for them to be competitive, with streit coming back next year, hamonic and macdonald have been solid and tavares and okposo are only getting better. throw in some solid goaltending and their a tough team to face.
you must mean "another" team ...

To the OP, I don't think they need the top pick to get back to respectablility. They are having an upward swing themselves, although the wins aren't there. I watch quite a bit of their games and living/playing on long island I have quite a few "friends" that are isles fans and they have a pretty exciting team already.

Let them get a half decent goaltender and they'll be up there again fighting us for the 6-8 spot in the EC. I sure hope that we can continue to build OUR team and move up and fight for the 4-6 spot and then soon afterwards compete for the division.

Edit: Just as an FYI, I hate the Isles even more then the Devils which is saying a lot. But do I want them to move? Maybe just to piss off the Isles fans I know but other then that, I think having them here makes it a much more fun and exciting rivalry and wouldn't really want it any other way.
