If we do nothing (I expect this), then we won't be bad enough for a lottery pick in the next few years. We'll get a little better at most, maybe scrape into the playoffs one of the next couple years, but things won't be *good*.

If we go for broke and get stamkos, we either lose 4 1st round picks, or a lot of the assets that we would need to help us get over the top.

I think we will end up with nothing major. If we were to get a guy like stamkos somehow, it would also help draw other players here. Now we're seen as some potential, but mostly young guys without any chance of contending seriously. That probably hurt us in the richards thing, and it will continue to prevent us from drawing good free agents.
