You realize that whether you condone it or not, this organization IS trying to compete now rather than solely focusing on creating a stable of talent for future competition?

The reason...Well, we looked pretty good relative the rest of the conference for a time last season, without our leading scorer from the season before (Latendresse). It would seem that we aren't far off...Latendresse and a lengthy injury to Koivu might very well have been the difference between making it and not. We aren't ridiculously far off.
Or are you saying the replacement (i'm making a big assumption here) of our FA with other personnel is going to drag us down to the point where we have no shot at the post season? Are they that good?
