sure we can wait.
we have to wait.
the problem is sample size. as frustrating as it is to us fans to see five first round losses, the sample size is small enough that its not certain that our lack of winning a series isnt just due to random factors(injuries, bad matchups, etc.)
your opinions may have some empiric truth but to be carried out you would have to be able to actually make a deal for the scoring forward you covet.
we will never know if Poile chose the path he has chosen because he thinks its the best of all plans, or if it was the only plan he could actually make happen.
but nonetheless, the path has been chosen, and we will just have to wait and see what it brings us.
and choosing a path is not necessarily "dooming" us to anything... it is simply making a decision and following through. If it "dooms" us to continued compatitiveness and some playoff success in the next few years, I say bring on doom.
