Because winning the cup is hard. Because even if you build the best team in the league you still might not win a cup. You can ask Vancouver and Ottawa about that.

That doesn't mean its not worth building the best team you can.

And all three of those teams DID win a cup.

Nobody is saying we have to finish last for years on end. READ the posts...
