The Hawks and Pens sucked for years.

Teams don't tank they involuntarily suck because they lack talent.
That's why I don't like the word 'tank' it has implications that it was done on purpose.
Some teams purposefully rebuilt and others didn't. And some half rebuilt and then tried quick fixes and still dropped in the standings.
As for the Habs... who knows? Like I said, I think next year is a crapshoot. I don't see how anyone could say it isn't. We've got some good talent but that talent was present and playing well this season and we still lost. We could be better for sure but who's to say?
I doubt the top five pick that we get this year will be an impact player for us next season. And if we finish low again next year it won't be the worst thing in the world. Just please no more stupid quick fixes for vets who will take us nowhere. I can just see us trying to get Ollie Jokinen now.
