My question is was there the same hope of a better future, I guess with guys like Thibault, Ward, and whoever else.

Thanks, any insight would be great.
No, the houle era was a dark hole.

The biggest questions I have is -- is Gauthier a winner or is he a competitor ?

What will he do to prove that he can ice more than a competitive team...

With guys like Subban, Patches, Price... the time to rebuild was 3 to 5 years ago.

Now it seems like everything is out of sync -- will Gauthier have the ability to clean-house a bit, and build a true contender... all while remaining competitive?

We all know this team will never get a top lottery pick... so are we on our way?

Odds of winning a cup with guys like Subban, Price, Patches etc.. would have been better if we had sucked 3-4 years ago.... it's the reality
