On paper, going into next season, we are a competitive team. I mean, unless literally everything goes wrong once again, and we end up with another lottery pick. Not that that would be the worst thing in history given that crop of forwards.
Hockey isn't played on paper and honestly what's changed? What's gonna change a lottery team into a competitive team? We haven't done anything to improve our team, in fact we are probably going to lose one or both of Kostitsyn and moen, making our team even worse. Markov if he gets healthy which is a big if, can put us in to playoff contention. That doesn't make us a contender though, Boston, Rangers, Philly, Vancouver, Detroit, San Jose, those are competitive teams challenging for the cup. We are a bubble team at best.

I don't want to come off sounding so pessimistic but our future is not very bright, Suter and his agent understand this.
