I'm more concerned about building a very good team for the future, than sneaking into the playoffs to likely lose in the first round. The team as it sits just doesn't have the bodies needed. There are some elite players available this year that could help this team immensely. As a fan, I'd sacrifice one more year of no playoffs, if that means getting an elite player to add to our core. If you can add a MacKinnon, Barkov or Monahan to this team, make a few decent trades, and some good UFA pickups, this team could be a real threat down the road.
It is about sacrificing this year, in the hopes of building a better future.
