In 2009 we might have acquired someone like Matt Duchene in the draft had we simply finished the year with Craig Hartsburg coaching and resisted trading a first round pick for Campoli only to worsen our draft position.

We waited until our Stanley Cup veterans lost too much value instead of cleaning house in a timely fashion and maximizing the return on those players. I simply don't see Bryan Murray and Eugene Melnyk as being capable of exercizing the patience now required to return this team to elite status.
What the heck are you smoking...Melnyk and BM not having the patience required to go through a rebuild. Why would Melnyk extend BM if he didn't think that he'd have the patience to go through a rebuild. So you're saying getting a 1st and a possible 2nd for a 2nd line center is bad return? Getting a 2nd rounder for Kelly having one of his worst years...please stop trolling.
