My proposed strategy predicts a rapid transition from lottery team to cup contender. The amount of time spent in between depends on the development curve of our youth and Bergevin's batting average on the UFA market.
Rapid transitions have happened. New Jersey went from basement team to Stanley cup finalist in one season. Part of that was the usefullness of Adam Larsson and the signing of UFA Ilya Kovalchuk. Carolina went from basement in 2004 to cup winner in 2006, in which Andrew Ladd helped.
