What does "need" mean?

I'm not claiming there is only a single strategy that can lead to victory -- I don't think that would be true. I'm claiming that a single extra year of entering the season with a weak roster, as Bergevin is doing, should be enough to solidify a championship core. I'm claiming that this is *a* good strategy. I listed some specific points. If you have an alternative, specific strategy, please start a thread about it. I'm curious.
