I just don't see how we can avoid a rebuild after the twins decline.
Well the Detroit model comes to mind. But they may have to face the music this year.

Hey, it's not like this isn't problematic. Like I said, you'll be facing losing two Hart trophy winners at the same time. That will be one of the big Gillis challenges he'll have to deal in a few years, assuming he is still running the show. And the truth is, you won't replace them, you'll just have a dfferent team.

Hopefully one that is successful.

But that's sports. Hard to get to the top. Harder to stay there.

So, I don't look too far into the future...I just enjoy the present. If I spend my time worrying about what's next, it's going to compromise my ability to enjoy the present.

I'm an optimist by nature so I can accept there will be ebbs and flows.

However, after all that....I'd really like us to win the Cup in my lifetime.
