No doubt, you might not land the next Crosby picking early.

But, the chances are much greater than picking 10-15.

I still state that the worst thing that can happen to a franchise is to be stuck in the Calgary like doldrums - never good enough to challenge, never bad enough to acquire any game-changing talent.

Except for us, it's worse, because we don't sign free agents. So that avenue to rebuilding is closed. At least Calgary will spend some money.
