It's not because your prospect pool isn't a giant killer that your franchise is doomed to nosedive for six years.

Prospects can be had via trade and free-agency. For example the Senators got Rundblad, Filatov and Butler that way. Widely considered one of the best prospect pools at that with no one picked in the top 5. Toronto is doing that too with limited success. Tampa picked high a couple times but most of their team is built with trades and free-agency.

If there's trouble with the Habs and you're not competing as much you have the hockey people to pull off something here if you keep drafting smart on top of it.
