They haven't been doing it for long enough to know that they aren't good at it.
I'll tell you this though. I'm a little worried about the long-term success of this team. If things continue this way, I feel like we're going to have a couple of years of great success and then start another decline into mediocrity. You would have hoped that somewhere in the 7 years of running the organization this way, there would be some true elite talent developing in the system. We might still have that, in truth. Depends on Kreider and DelZotto. But it's not there in any kind of obvious way. We will peak with pieces added to the core that we have, but we won't necessarily sustain because the elite talent in the organization, aside from Lundqvist, isn't or won't be a long-term thing.
