And if it is, it usually is nothing to be excited about, because it means you are terrible and will need more than one guy to save you. Ask Edmonton, ask the Islanders, the Blue Jackets.

When you build a team to suck, you get more than you bargain for.

I don't think you will find anyone happy with our forward squad right now. I'm not very optimistic about the next season, but I refuse to think we are this bad and need to have another year of this.
Half of our better defenseman won't be available until 1/2/3 years from now. We need elite forwards this year and next year. We are not like Edmonton because our best forwards and best defensemen will be ready almost at the same time and we already have elite goaltending.
