No argument here.

Fans often look at their own team in a bubble and compare its progress unto itself. Where big picture all teams are simultaneously building teams and benefiting unilaterally through the draft or development of its youth for the future.

So at the end of the day its going to come down to actual talent level of teams that determines its success.

Players like Kadri and Colborne expected to be Leafs future as their top prospects are gaining development time presently.. However big picture its not only about making the current Leafs team better by replacing players on the current roster, but making bigger impacts than all other teams in comparison to what they also possess and are in similar situations where these prospects are being counted on and similar benefiting by the current situation.

If the Leafs want be begin passing teams in the standings they need to be better than those teams, and not just better than themselves of old/past.
