We want to see a Stanley Cup in Montreal, and we have a sufficiently long attention span that we're willing to wait longer than 5 minutes. If it takes a season of development then so be it, that's much better than a decade of bubble teams.

Your strategy has been in place since the 1993-1994 season. It has brought nothing. 20 years without the Cup. We're turning into the Maple Leafs. Every year 1993 bears more and more resemblance to 1967.

There are rules to this thread. If Bergevin mortgages the future to trade for players to help us win now, then the thread is obsolete. But as it stands this team is a lottery team. And as long as this team is a lottery team then that is the correct paradigm to discuss strategy.
See your whole argument is flawed because they are not going into the season fighting for 8th spot. All teams go in fighting for first and things unfold like injuries, trades, etc.
