Nobody is suggesting that we root for the team to lose. Stop being silly.

No we don't. Not all teams are created equally and if you don't understand this it explains why you don't understand what's actually being discussed here.

Yeah, right...

Nobody said they did. We said they should rebuild and deal away vets for prospects. If we sink in the standings... so be it.

The Oilers will probably have a better team than we will... and that could be as soon as this year. That's what happened with other rebuilding clubs that have leapfrogged us over the years including Pittsburgh, LA and Chicago.

Sure. But drafting high consistently usually results in finding a superstar. Superstars lead to cups. Having one doesn't mean you'll win a cup. But if you don't have one, it's next to impossible to win.

Notice that we haven't had a true superstar in the past two decades. Notice also that we haven't drafted high in the past three decades. Notice that we haven't won any cups in two decades and that we've usually been treading water.

Good for you. What does that have to do with anything?
