I don't get those who advocate not improving the team because, according to their reasoning, it won't make a difference and we're not a contender anyway.

MB's job is to put together the best team he can given the existing contracts. It's more exciting to compete until the last game of the season and have a chance to get in the playoffs. Then if we make it and win a round against the Bruins, then the players get a taste of what it is to win in this city. Otherwise, we're encouraging a losing attitude.

If we compete till the end and don't make the playoffs, it's still better than knowing in January that the team is in the lottery. And playing one round sure beats watching other teams play for an extra two months.

If we're thinking in terms of draft positioning, we have no chance of finishing behind CBJ so we're not getting the big prize. We're looking at a pick in the 10-20 range and I trust TT will make the most of it.
