See, I don't understand this. Why just 'dream' about it? Doesn't it make sense to proactively do something about it? How is it that other clubs manage to get these stars and we don't?

And Hasek didn't win anything until he had Detroit behind him. As for Ovechkin... he's 26 years old and on one of the best teams in the league. Are you saying he's washed up? It took Yzerman till he was 32 to win, but when he did he led his clubs to three cups and is now considered one of the best captains of all time.
Again, look at the clubs that won. Not all had the best goaltending. Not all had the best defense. And not all had the best offense. Lemieux and Gretzky's teams were offensive. Brodeur and Chara's teams were defensive.
MOST though were strong in all three areas.
But we don't have the scoring so we try to convince ourselves that it's not important. It is.
Sure you can win it without the great goaltending, but why try to build a team this way? Same with weak forwards? Why try to win this way? It doesn't make sense. It's about balance man. Going in saying well we have good goaltending and defense so we might win is silly... we shouldn't try to win with the bare minimum. We should try to build the BEST team that we can. And that includes offense.
And the choice isn't between Ovechkin and great goaltending... that's not what you should be looking for. The choice would be between Ovechkin vs. our best offensive player. Which would you rather have? Which do you think gives us a better chance at winning?
