If there's anything Leafs fans should know, it's the cost of being impatient.
The reality is whether the leafs and management are patient or impatient the team doesn't make the playoffs nor is competitive. What is needed is smart, pragmatic and shrewd management that can make the leafs a competitive (and ideally playoff) team without sacrificing the future and needing to hide behind excuses of inheriting a weak team and low quality prospect pool.
That is a better goal and not this plan of building for future with what appears to more mid quality prospects and fewer elite prospects and hoping the team makes the playoff sometime in the next decade - maybe.
