You can wait to make a trade until after Eller and Galchenyuk have proven themselves a capable #2 and #1, but if you make the trade now you're swining for the fences, because Plekanec should have higher value now, and a prospect now is worth more than a prospect in 2015.

You, on the other hand, hold the team in higher esteem, you believe it is already at the level of a bubble team, and thus a sequence of safe moves should be sufficient to propel us to the next stage.
Bolded might just never happen, so you're just possibly suggesting infinite tank.

And while underlined is more likely, it might never happen as well.

The current team is pretty much a bubble team, unless you think Carey Price played a typical season last year, and I'm not even talking about the shootouts.
