Or the Devils own, Ilya Kovalchuk. Can he ever be a winner? I'm thinking the NJD will not win a Cup for the next 14 years.
Once you stray down a path, any path, it's hard to overcome.
What's the alternative?
This team isn't going to build through free-agency. They
build through free-agency.
They need to build through the draft, and despite what you seem to think, it can be done. Look at what Oklahoma City is doing, and Memphis. It
be successful and, in the case of the Raptors, it
to be successful. The only way they're going to attract
free-agents is to build a
team. The way to do so (in the Raptors case) is to build through the draft, and have good asset management.
That's just the way it is.
