So while you are correct we have a decent core, its pathetic the brass can't deliver that 'one' player that this hockey team deserves. Enough mediocrity, give the market the superstar forward they have been begging for.
Seriously? Number one: we have Price and Subban who were recently drafted. Are they not potential superstars? Number two: how the hell do you expect a team that drafts in the bottom 15 every year to deliver a superstar? Give me a break. The drafting this team has done is stupendous, with draft steals such as Subban, Halak, Streit, etc.

They don't deserve ignorant bashing because some fans want more and more superstars. We have two potential studs, how is that not enough for now? We draft by needs, not by "WE NEED A BIG NAME SUPERSTAR FORWARD HERO TALENT MAGICIAN OMG!"

Yea, and so did every other team who drafted before those picks too. It's so easy to look back on things and complain about it. EVERY SINGLE TEAM missed out on Subban, they most all be morons according to you. Sometimes you get lucky(Halak) and sometimes you don't(Fischer). It is the nature of drafting in sports.
