No, actually, it doesn't. What it comes down to is building a contender.

Your right, the goal is to make a team a contender as opposed to simply making the playoffs and getting bounced in the 1st round. However, IMO we are no closer to being a contender now as opposed to 7 years ago, the key pieces STILL aren't here which is a) an elite goalie b) a top centre/depth down the middle c) a team defensive system and d) gritty bottom 6 players.

Yes, Burke has added skill (Lupul, Kessel, Phanuef, Gardiner) but really he has not once added any substance to this team which is KEY to being a contender.
