The way I see it, with Pacioretty/Gorges/Price locked up long-term, and Galchenyuk in the system, our stanley cup contention window is 2015-2018 or so.

We should definitely trade some vets, we can't trade all the vets in my opinion as that's hard to pull off, there's only so much demand in the trade market. We also need to go for the playoffs in the 2014-2015 season in order to develop our young players and transition to being a winning team, same as the oilers are doing this year.
