We instead have stated more than once, should you bother to check, that when the true contending stage is achieved, in other words consistent top 6 status, over 2 years, with late playoff runs that do not depend only on luck, that is acceptable in that year or two cup window to trade picks or youth for the additional talented Vet that may win you a cup.
This is an ongoing and complex discussion, please refer to older threads to get yourself up to speed on this topic, and you are of course welcome to debate!
If we are so bad that we finish in the basement two years in a row how do we suddenly go from that to contending in 2 years? Do you really think a 20 year old Galchenyuk and a 19 year old Mackinnon/Jones are good enough to turn a bottom dweller into a contender?
